We Take Power Seriously.
Bolts 'N' Volts is a group of young workers who built a robot designed to Restore Your Power Within The Hour. Our robot's name is Striker, and it was constructed to prevent the world from prolonged power grid failures. We utilized the engineering design process when we made our robot, carefully brainstorming and testing to find the optimal design for each component. Our marketing department works hard to present our team and product to reflect our robot.
