2013 National Robotics League Championships
The 2013 National Robotics League (NRL) Championships will be held on the Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus on May 17-19, 2013. The National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) announced created the NRL, a robot combat competition, to help introduce a new generation of Americans to the advanced skills and sophisticated technology that mark manufacturing today. This is the third year in a row that the National Championships will be held in Indianapolis.
This year, NTMA’s Robotics League is partnering with The 2013 National SeaPerch Challenge, a student-driven competition featuring sophisticated underwater robots that will face off in the Olympic-sized pool at the IUPUI’s Natatorium on May 18. The SeaPerch Program also provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics – in this case, by building underwater ROVs as part of a school’s science and engineering technology curriculum. The program is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research.
