The Ipswich Art Gallery is proud to host the 2018 Australian Robowars Antweight Nationals presented by our own Ipswich Robotics Sports Group. At 150 grams or less, what these tiny bots lack in mass and might they more than make up for with speed, agility and sneaky surprise.

Watch these remote-controlled robots spin and flip their way in the national competition to find the best of the best. Will it be survival of the strongest or smartest? Which robot will outlast all others to be named Australia’s best?

Take your place ringside as bot builders go head-to-head in the specially designed Antweight arena. Destruction is the name of the game and sparks will fly!
