The Rocky Mountain Battlebot Leauge (RMBL) is a manufacturing workforce development program of the Northern Utah National Tooling & Machining Association (NUNTMA) and the National Tooling & Machining Foundation (NTMF). The RMBL is a job-driven, project-based STEM learning program that energizes students to learn about the manufacturing process and the technical skills needed for the design and fabrication of a 15lb Bot to battle in a gladiator-style competition.
The student teams are encouraged to build partnerships with local manufacturing companies and post-secondary institutions during the Bot building process. This provides the students with direct application of classroom concepts to real world manufacturing situations. The RMBL endows students with the 21st century skills needed by industry including project and time management, teamwork, problem solving and critical thinking. As a result of participation in the NRL program and interactions with industry mentors, students discover the excitement and rewards of a career in manufacturing,
RMBL Vision & Mission
The vision is for every student in Utah to consider manufacturing as a viable career option.
The mission is to provide an exciting, hands-on experience through business/education partnerships to build the current and future workforce needed by the manufacturing industry.
