Gibbs and Associates, developer of GibbsCAM, software for programming CNC machine tools, announced that it is a major sponsor of the BattleBots IQ program showcased at IMTS 2006. This sponsorship is part of Gibbs' ongoing 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.

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.
