Bot Brawl 2016

Our current plans for the Bot Brawl 2016 are to have the event on August 13th, 2016 at the Peoria Civic Center in conjunction with Ignite Peoria. These plans are subject to change but we are attempting to move the Bot Brawl back from Bloomington/Normal back to the Peoria area and there are currently no plans to have a Bot Brawl in conjunction with the Illinois State University Family Science Day as in recent years.
