"AZ Robotic Combat" Arena Funds

Competitions for combat robotics exist all around the country like the photo above that was shot at an event in Pennsylvania. However, no such event has existed in Arizona for nearly 15 years. This is what our club Arizona Robotic Combat (ARC) is here to change. But in order for our club to have an environment to fight our machines in, we need an arena. Combat arenas need to be strong, durable and most importantly, safe.  This means we need thick polycarbonate walls, strong aluminum framing, and rugged steel floors.

What is combat robotics? Combat robotics is a hobby that is both exciting and educational! By combining the thrill of RC driving with the STEM skills of robotics, competitors build their own fighting machines and put them to the ultimate test in 1-on-1 fights. Check out This Video as an exciting example!

ARC is a group of over 50 members united by the goal of bringing combat robotics to Arizona. From beginners working on their first bots, to experienced veterans with championship titles, we all want to see this hobby succeed. If you're an Arizona local (or live nearby) we'd love to have you as part of our club as well. Check out our Facebook Group and take a look at the Getting Started guide on The ARC Website for more information. We'll be having our first event March 31st!
