K*bots UK National Championship - Twenty teams of young engineers from ten different primary schools and educational groups converged at The Coombes CE school, Wokingham, in the last week of June for a very special competition. K*bots UK has been very successful over the last year, extending its reach into new schools as well as welcoming back repeat entries from the last UK championship, held in 2011. The selection process was incredibly tough and the level of competition significantly higher than in previous years. During the morning session, all teams were able to make tweaks and improvements to their K*bots in preparation for the afternoon’s matches.

K*bots Made With K'NEX® Parts - Robotics Camps for students

K*bots were invented by Thomas Vermersch from Texas at the San Antonio Academy during the summer of 1998. These K*bots weighed just under three pounds and were strictly made from K'NEX Brands parts. Division 1 was the first Division created with its two-wheel  drive K*bots.

Then in 1999 Division 2 K*bots were created with their powerful four-wheel drive. Division 3 remote control three motor K*bots were created in 2002 as K*bot interest started to expand and we had our first K*bot World Championships. Division M was invented in England in 2001 by several young students who loved to build less than one pound manually operated robots made with K'NEX parts. In 2004 Division M became a new Division and part of the K*bot World Championships.

These K*bot competitions helped students better understand and develop engineering principles such as torque, traction, gearing mechanisms, brake systems, and center of gravity, as well as design and coordination skills for our science minded students of the future. Mr. Vermersch left Texas and now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.  

The 2014 Division 1 Pro-Challenge had two time World Championship Dominic taking on four time World Champion Harrison taking on Adam and seven time World Champion Brendan.

   K*bot World Championships®           2015  K*bot World Championships®    Camp made with K'NEX®       July 13 - 17, 2015 at the Black Mountain Recreation Center -  Registration starts on April 8, 2015 - reserve a spot at the Black Mountain Recreation Center or Online Registration at     http://www.cityofhenderson.com/parks-and-recreation/home

Black Mountain Recreation Center with the City of  Henderson Parks and Recreation Department will be the new home of the 2015 K*bot World Championships. This Black Mountain Recreation Center is only about 10 miles from the Las Vegas Strip in the Las Vegas Valley. We look forward to this great new location as we prepare for the exciting 2015 K*bot World Championship season. This year the 2015 K*bot World Championships will have great cost savings that will reduce fees by $9.00 up to $221.00 per student.

We have a few other major announcements concerning the K*bot World Championships for 2015: will be the year of new K*bot beginnings with several needed new rule changes to fine tune our K*bot operations. Major change at the 2015 K*bot World Championships:  We will no longer hold student Division K*bots which have competed at the previous K*bot World Championship, they will be recycled unless you are on the top 10 in the world list published at kbotworld.com.  K*bot Registration fees will drop substantially for the first time ever to help parents with money needed to register their children. All K*bot Divisions will have the same age limit for students of age 7 through 15 to match the New Henderson Parks and Recreation general guidelines. All K*bot Divisions will now compete for 75 seconds during competition instead of the old 90 seconds time. New guidelines for 2015 Division 3 K*bots: Two registered Students will team up together to build and operate one Division 3 K*bot. Division 3 now requires teamwork and a willingness to work together on all aspects of building and operation of the remote control K*bot. This is now a two person team competition in Division 3.

The 2014 K*bot World Championships will be remembered as the year that the unexpected ruled K*bots. K*bots Made With K'NEX® parts showdown in the desert is over in Las Vegas. Division 2 again stole the show setting new finals records as we witnessed the first all girls K*bot World Championship final as 7 year veteran Ilana Rahaman with Jarod took on first year Henderson, Nevada student Emma Olmstead with Bulldozer. Emma had to rebuild Bulldozer, her Division 2 K*bot, which competed at the Henderson K*bot Championships which made her unbelievable upset of the best American girl competitor in Division 2 extraordinary.  Emma was first to the center line by about 4 cm (1 1/2 inches) and surprised almost everyone as she was able to hold off Ilana's powerful K*bot and win the 2014 Division 2 K*bot World Championship.

Riley Mulcahy with Zer0 from Las Vegas, NV defeated two time Division 2 World Champion          Jarod Klingonsmith with The Man-Handler to become the 2014 Division 1 K*bot World Champion.

 

 

Keaton McAdams with Check M9 from Las Vegas, NV defeated Joshua Lum with Dark Matter from Los Angeles, CA (Henderson Champion) to become the 2014 Division M K*bot World Champion.


 

 

Gabriel Spivey with Masher from Las Vegas, NV became the 2014 Division 3 K*bot World Champion defeating Daniel Park with The Fighter from Honolulu, HI.
