Bots High is an exciting, feature length documentary produced by Coffee and Celluloid Productions following the adventures of three high school robotics teams battling for first place at the national robotics competition in Miami, Florida.

Bots High follows three teams of high school robotics geeks who build and battle their way to a national robotics competition in Miami. Our heroes include genius inventor Will, who constructs seemingly indestructible bots that unfortunately self-destruct (sometimes in a cloud of smoke and flames), and My Mechanical Romance, a team of Catholic school girls who stand out amid male bot participants with a combination of beauty, brains, and fashion sense.
