alliantgroup at NRL National Championship

Sparks were flying!

Our alliantgroup volunteers crushed it at the 2018 National Robotics League (NRL) National Championships.

The competition was held at California University in Pennsylvania in May. 70 teams from seven states and Puerto Rico battled it out for the Grand Champion title.

alliantgroup team members Alex, Estefania, Melanie & Tara got right in there with the students, not afraid to have a robot catch fire around them, even sporting their safety glasses with style!

The NRL, a program of the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA), provides a national structure for educational robotics where students design and build remote controlled robots to face off in a gladiator-style competition.
