The NRL National Competition is an event where students from across the country design and build remote controlled robots that fight to destroy their opponents by using a variety of weapons and tactical actions. These Bots weigh 15lbs and fight in a high tech arena protected by steel and bulletproof polycarbonate plastic. Students use their intelligence and machine skills to create the ultimate robot that dishes out the most damage while being able to withstand destruction from its opponent.

Sparks fly. Metal crunches. Robots go to war.

Perhaps all forms of chaos and destruction aren’t created equal.

Ask a competitor about NRL, and the first thing you hear isn’t likely to be anything about applied math, in-game testing or machining parts. Instead, you’ll see heartening wins, crushing losses and Bots inflicting maximum carnage during each and every battle. And yet, underneath it all, school-age team members are getting a real-world technical education. Many, in the process, are being introduced to career options they may never have considered otherwise.

If you love mechanical mayhem and thrilling competition, this is the one robotic event of the year you do NOT want to miss!

The Event is FREE and the Public is Welcome to Attend!

Friday Night session is from 7 – 10 PM
Saturday session is from 9 AM – 6:30 PM
