Who says learning about technology can’t be fun?
Students participated in the Extreme BattleBots competition in May at Staub Manufacturing Solutions in Dayton and got firsthand experience having fun with science.
Students from several area schools built robots and then set them upon each other.
The goal of the Extreme BattleBots competition is to get students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers, said Steve Staub, company president and co-owner.
Staub said he got involved in the program as a way to encourage interest in advanced technology.
Here’s a bit of BattleBot video, courtesy of Miami Valley Communications Council, which filmed the competition this year.
