Mini Robot Rumble 2017

Published on: 15 August, 2017

The inaugural Mini Robot Rumble was held on Saturday 15th July.

With the generous support of Vodafone and the University of Auckland, the day was a huge success, with heaps of spectators and plenty of competitors. We were very impressed with the quality of some of the robots on display.
