"If you look at Science Block, our robot, it basically looks like a lot of the teams who didn't get in. A brick with a spike."
— The team on Science Block
Science Block was a competitor that attempted to enter Series 3 and 4 of Robot Wars. It initially attempted to enter Series 3, and returned for Series 4 under the name Science Block 2, but on both occasions, it was not selected to compete.
Science Block was an invertible, six-wheeled box-shaped robot armed with a kinetic spike as its main weapon. It was built by two A-level students and their physics teacher, and painted blue with hazard markings and signs in an attempt to make its appearance more interesting. The team cited Science Block's functional, yet simple design as a factor in the robot failing to qualify for Series 3.
"I think basically RW are trying to get the ones that are going to look the most impressive on television, even if this means making a •••• robot. I bow before all of you who built superior robots that didn't get in, because we all know that we can always kick the ones that look nice's ass anytime. Next year, it's practical, strong, and pretty!"
