Robotics Teams Qualify for National Championships

The Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Tooling and Machining Association spearheaded efforts to bring a national student robotics program to the Pittsburgh region, and local teams have qualified for the 2012 National Robotics League (NRL) national championships May 5-6 in Indianapolis.  Read the article about these local teams. 
NTMA founded the NRL to help change misperceptions about manufacturing and attract a new generation of students to well-paying technical careers.  The program partners teams of middle school, high school, and post-secondary school students with local NTMA manufacturers to work together to build robots designed to do battle.  The result is not only a destruction-driven face-off of incredible machines, but also an opportunity to develop high-tech skills and cultivate the interest of a new generation of students who will determine the future of manufacturing.
