MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The A-Tech machinists completed second place Saturday within the Nationwide Robotics League Competitors held at Robert Morris College.
The scholars, with the assistance of their teacher, Ron Maurer, constructed a robotic they referred to as Gregg to compete within the NRL.
The principle objective of the NRL competitors is to be the “final robotic standing” in a contest the place two robots battle head-to-head in a three-minute match.

Maurer contacted the Nationwide Robotics League, and that was the beginning of his precision machining courses getting into the competitors.
“I’m very pleased with our Ashtabula County A-Tech college and this workforce that constructed a really sturdy Robobot,” stated Larry Fargo, one in all A-Tech’s business companions. “They took a pounding all day from some top-notch machines, but they’d the tenacity to restore, recharge between battles, and are available again within the cage every time with a need to win.”
The competition consists of two divisions: Robobots (highschool) and Juniorbots (junior excessive).
College students management the robots and try to disable or destroy their opponent’s robotic.
