Company continues on-going commitment to inspire the next generation of manufacturers.

MOORPARK, CA - August 15, 2006 - Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM, software for programming CNC machine tools, announced today that they are a major sponsor of the BattleBots IQ program showcased at IMTS 2006 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois on September 6th - 13th, 2006. This sponsorship is part of Gibbs' on-going commitment to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. The main arena where the BattleBot IQ demonstrations will be held has been named the GibbsCAM Coliseum in recognition of Gibbs' level of support.

"As the manufacturing workforce ages we need new blood introduced," states Bill Gibbs, president and founder of Gibbs and Associates. "The BattleBot IQ program is an effective way to introduce school age kids to the career opportunities that exist in manufacturing and product development. The format combines learning with competition, as well as teamwork with individual accomplishment. And it's just plain fun. Many students who have been through the program have made career changes into engineering or manufacturing as a result of their BattleBot IQ experience."

The BattleBot IQ program, which grew out of the extremely popular BattleBots television program, combines a prepared curriculum covering such diverse topics as mechanics, physics, project management, team building, and hands-on manufacturing engineering. Offered at the high school and college levels, participants use what they've learned to create robots which are then put to the test against other students' robots in an arena. The level of enthusiasm created by this approach not only inspires the students to learn, but the overall experience reinforces what is learned.

Each day throughout IMTS visitors will have an opportunity to hear about the BattleBots IQ program and to watch, or even control, BattleBots in competition against other visitors. For more information about the BattleBots IQ program, go to www.battlebotsIQ.com.
