It’s round three of robotics battles this weekend as Cal U hosts the National Robotics League competition at the Convocation Center. 

About 70 high school teams from across the country, including some southwestern Pennsylvania BotsIQ competitors, will send their robots into battle May 16-18. 

The Convocation Center also hosted the FIRST Robotics and BotsIQ competitions earlier this year. 

The National Robotics League is a manufacturing workforce development program of the National Tooling & Machining Association where students design and build remote controlled robots to face-off in a gladiator-style competition. 

Through the manufacturing process of Bot building, students’ imaginations are captured as they design, build and compete with their own robotic creations. 

Through this hands-on effort along with industry partnerships, students gain practical knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) – all essential skills for manufacturing.
