alliantgroup is the proud sponsor of the National Robotics League (NRL) Innovation Award. The NRL Innovation Award recognizes innovative solutions applied by students in the designing, building or testing of their Bots. The award seeks to motivate student teams to explore new ways to implement new design features or methods, utilize new technologies like 3D printing, Bluetooth or sensors, and employ new communication strategies or project management tactics. This new award directly supports the NRL mission of providing an exciting, hands-on experience through business/education partnership to build the current and future workforce needed by the manufacturing industry. The winning team at each NRL regional competition will receive $500. The final Innovation Award winner at the NRL National Competition will be awarded $1000.
I was honored to be able to present two of this year’s Innovation Awards in person-at Bots KC in Kansas City and at NRL Colorado in Denver. It was thrilling to see intense battle bot competition in person.
Congratulations to all of the alliantgroup NRL Innovation Award regional competition winners! I can’t wait for the NRL National Competition May 17 & 18 at California University of Pennsylvania and to see what amazing innovation wins a team the $1000 Innovation Award prize.
