Seattle Academy's Middle School robotics club participates in the local combat robotics league Western Allied Robotics (W.A.R.). This is similar to the professional robots seen in the show “Battle Bots.” Students compete in the “Ant Weight Division” where robots have to weigh under 1 pound, the “Plastic Ant” League which has the same weight requirement but all parts must be plastic, and the “Beetle Weight Division” where the robot has to weigh under 3 pounds.
