UC Berkeley's Premier Robotics Organization

Regarding COVID-19

With respect to the global pandemic we are all experiencing, the administrative team at RoboBears is dedicated to fully adapt our operations to a remote format in order to continue running the club and to maintain a competitive edge.

To do this, we require all new members to enroll in a mandatory DeCal, which will be held
online on Tuesday and Thursday from 6 PM to 7 PM.

Here, we will cover all of the necessary information to design, manufacture, and prepare for
Cal Combat Robotics Competition.
If you would like to know more and have any questions, you are welcome to come and join us at an informational session! Please sign up at this link and we will contact you with more information.


Join our amazing team and learn how to build the best robots.

Like to create? So do we. Since our inception, we've strived to provide a space that allows students to succeed alongside their peers as a team. Robotics isn't exactly easy, but that's what makes us stronger.

From our seasoned design leads to our young and enterprising engineers, we welcome anyone willing to put themselves to the test and compete against thousands of bright minds from around the world. As we move forward, we will grow, take on new competitions, and complete more projects.

We are a community of designers, creators, and innovators.

We are RoboBears.

What We Do


At the start of every semester, members form teams to compete with at RoboGames.


Teams spend months crafting the most efficient and practical designs using industry-leading tools.


Each group machines parts using UC Berkeley's lab and begins to build their project.


More than a semester's worth of effort culminates in this one-day event, where robots battle for glory.

Cal Combat Robotics Competition

Due to the cancellation of RoboGames, RoboBears hosted its own 3lb competition on March 31, 2019. The event was a big success, and we plan on turning the event into an annual spectacle. Stay tuned for information about the next event, and a huge thanks to Bot Bash Party for providing the arena!
