What makes Crackers N Smash unique...

Team Captain Alex has aspired to winning Robot Wars since he was six years old. He has always loved to build things and once designed a go-kart/bathtub hybrid. The team’s biggest fear is flippers especially Apollo, who can launch a robot six feet into the air. It took the team three months to build both machines and they cost £8,000. Crackers ‘N’ Smash will soon be visiting schools across the country, hoping to inspire a new generation of engineers.
