We still hold our own meetings but we now operate out of shared space and with more resources than before. See us at club fairs, the robotics club kickoff early in the school year, every week at meetings (1-5 pm in merryfield robotics workspace for fall term 2023), and at our competitions hosted 2-3 times per year.
The Oregon State Combat Robotics Club (OSCR) is a student-led organization at OSU that engages participants in the growing sport of Combat Robotics. Consisting of weight classes from 150 grams to 250 pounds, robot combat events occur every month all over the world. Starting from humble beginnings, the sport has now grown into sponsored and televised spectacles. Members of OSCR design, print, build and compete individually, against one another and other west-coast builders in the one-pound Plastic Antweight division, with a larger team build in the twelve-pound Hobbyweight class.
Oregon State Combat Robotics was founded in 2019 by OSU alums Pavel and Rijen Shonka, and quickly embraced by the west coast combat robotics community. Originally focusing on the Antweight division, the club designed and developed a combat arena capable of supporting one-pound, full-metal, combat robots. Events hosted by OSCR are attended by members and students of OSU, as well as various robotics associations from California to Washington. In addition to hosting these increasingly competitive events, we also now have a team project bot in the 12 pound full metal weight class that is nearing competition readiness!
Meeting announcements sent out via Discord, for fall 2023 we meet from 1-5 every friday in the merryfield robotics club workspace
