2014 National Competition Dates and Location Announcement

Mark your calendars, and plan to join us in Cleveland May 16-17 for the 2014 NRL National Competition.  The event will be held in the Lou Higgins Center at Baldwin Wallace College, a venue that offers easy airport access, free parking and plenty of space for up to 100 teams, 500+ spectators, two arenas, as well as exhibit space for sponsors to interact with students and spectators.

The move to Cleveland also means the teams from many of our most active regions will spend considerably less time on the bus, and everyone can expect to pay less than $100 per room for overnight accommodations.

For more information about the National Robotics League event, including ways to get involved as a volunteer or sponsor, contact Maureen Carruthers at
