    2017 Greatest hits Meadville Robobots



    Kevin Tommaney from Armstrong cable has finished compiling and editing the full video of this year’s contest.   He has posted on YouTube for public access,  the link is below.


    The video is about 4 hours in length, he’s also planning to edit a shorter, ~ 1hr video of the biggest hits and will post it when ready.


    Feel free to pass along and share the link to any interested parties.

    Keep checking back for more information on the 2015 Robobots Competition! Robobots is a hands-on, robot-building contest for High School and Middle School students.  It was created in 2007 by the National Tooling & Machine Association to create interest in technical careers. What is the National Robotics League? The National Robotics League (NRL) is a combat robotics league where students design and build remote controlled robots to face-off in competition.  Through the process of robot building, student's imaginations are captured as they design, build, and compete with their own robotic creations; through this hands-on effort, gain practical knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math - all essential skills for manufacturing. The NRL is the only combat robotics that formalizes ties between competitor teams and manufacturing partners.  Competitors get turned on to the career possibilities in manufacturing.  Manufacturers build valuable industry-school links by helping competitors gain a manufacturing knowledge base for a future manufacturing workforce. Why is the NRL important to the future of manufacturing? The NRL attracts smart, capable students who love to build things, figure out how to solve problems and win.  In other words, exactly the sory of people we hope will make up the next generation of manufacturing leaders.  By attracting and supporting these students now, our industry helps ensure some of them grow up to be the workers, engineers, show owners, and industry leaders we need to ensure a bright future for American Manufacturing. Components of the Program1.   Students and teachers develop an engineering problem by inventing a mechanical challenge 2.   Students begin the design process by building, testing, and experimenting with various components and modules utilized by the NRL. 3.   Student teams develop, share, and record multiple ideas for machine playing strategies and concepts.    4.   Student teams select optimal ideas and identify the best mechanical strategies.  Students design, construct, and test electrical and mechanical sub-assembles and systems. 5.   Student teams integrate their respective subassemblies and systems. 6.   Student teams work in conjuction with their selected manufacturing partner to finalize and create the student's NRL competitive robot.
