The sparks will fly when area high school students square off in the 2015 RoboBots Competition Saturday, April 25 at Lakeland Community College.
Team Euclid, made up of Euclid High School students and sponsored by HGR Industrial Surplus, is one of the teams preparing to put its 15-pound remote control battle robot into the arena.
RoboBots is a program of the Alliance for Working Together, a Cleveland area group of companies focused on advancing manufacturing through training and education, outreach and strategic partnerships and grants.
RoboBots teams began preparing their battle bots back in December. Team Euclid visited HGR and picked up a few items to add to their battle bot. Over the past few months, students have been able to enjoy hands-on experience in manufacturing, working alongside engineers and machinists to create a winning battle robot.
