NRL 2022 National Championship & College Invitational
May 20 - May 21
Sparks will Fly and Metal will definitely Crunch at the NRL 2022 National Championship on Friday, May 20 through Saturday, May 21. The competition is taking place at a new location – the UPMC Events Center on the campus of Robert Morris University in Moon Township, PA.
This is your chance to experience an unforgettable event to close out your school year. Come participate in this double elimination competition against Bots of all different designs and shapes. This is Full Contact Innovation at its best. Will your Bot dish out the most damage while being able to withstand destruction from its opponents in order to be named the NRL 2022 Grand Champion!
The NRL 2022 National Championship is open to middle school and high school teams that have competed at an NRL-sanctioned regional competition. Open slots will be available to school teams that don’t have a competition in their area and wish to build one. All school teams will be required to submit their engineering documentation and be interviewed at the competition by an industry expert about their Bot building experience.
The College Invitational is open to current post-secondary student teams that want to submit their robotic creations to the ultimate test in a separate competition. Teams interested in participating must be accompanied by an adult advisor (over the age of 21) and serve as volunteers during the event (you will receive a volunteer certificate). Please note that college teams are not required to present their documentation or go through an interview. All Bots must go through a safety inspection in order to be able to battle.
