Join us for a full day of Robot Combat in Hartford!

What is Maker Battle?

  • a battle where competitors pit their remote-controlled 1lb robots against each other for bragging rights and other prizes.
  • double-elimination tournament style with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
  • a cap of 18 bots for this day 
  • 2-minute rounds or until one robot has been disabled.
  • networking and promotional opportunities alongside an exciting and dynamic event new to the Hartford community.
  • access to like-minded makers and members from MakerspaceCT.

While this event is a competition, it also represents an opportunity to bring the community together! MakerspaceCT is a space where people and projects thrive, and we hope to partner with our sponsors and supporters in order to continue to provide this resource to Connecticut and beyond. Maker Battle 2023 will help us continue to provide equipment, community, and education through an unconventional medium.
