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*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.
