On Sunday, August 1, 2021, the Bloomsburg Children’s Museum is hosting a battlebot competition that is produced by Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Student Wildcats of Robotic Design (SWORD).
Come see 1-pound and 3-pound combat robots battle it out in intense one-on-one mechanical matchups. While you are there you can also enjoy the Museum, grab some food, score some swag from event sponsor T-Mobile, and try out our kid-friendly battlebots in our small arena!
The competition is open to all ages but is limited to ant weight (one-pound) and beetle weight (three-pound) robots. Admission to the competition is free for spectators and it includes Museum admission. If you have a battlebot and want to compete, you can register it at www.robotcombatevents.com/events/627 
All proceeds are being donated to the Bloomsburg Children’s Museum. If you don't have a battlebot but always dreamed of operating one, there will be a novice ring sponsored by Dyco Inc. and FIngertech Robotics where you can try out operating a scaled-down version of the battle bots. Food will be available for purchase on-site.
Doors open at 9 a.m., first fights start at 10:30 a.m. Battles will continue throughout the day until 6 p.m. when the final awards ceremony takes place.

Join us at Rohrbach's Farm Market on Saturday, August 14th for a fun-filled day with trucks of all kinds. Get an up-close, hands-on look at loaders, campers, tractors, fire engines, and more! This event is free for all ages!

"A wonderful destination for kids of all ages (and their parents). Dozens of wonderful programs, both in-person and virtual. Despite a challenging year due to Covid-19, the Museum has been able to safely reopen. We are so grateful to have a safe and engaging place to play and learn. Kudos to the staff!"

"We love this educational, hands- on place. Just bought a membership because we love the homeschool hangout events they host twice a month, in addition to many other opportunities. Very friendly, helpful volunteers and Bloom U. students who help staff it. Highly recommend!"
