On May 17-18, manufacturing’s future was on full display at the NRL 2019 National Competition at California University of PA. 58 teams from 7 states assembled to determine who’s remote-controlled Bot would survive our unique version of FULL CONTACT INNOVATION.
In the end, Bedford High School’s Rosie the Riveter came from behind to defeat Pine-Richland High School’s M.O.A.B. to take home 1st Place. In addition, Bedford High School was named NRL’s Grand Champion as a result of their combined scores from the arena, documentation review and interview. Bloomsburg Area High School’s Rhynex 2 took home the 3rd Place.
