This robotics competition centers on skills specific to manufacturing while resulting in a micro-credential


This project creates a new type of robotics competition that centers specifically on robotics skills in manufacturing. Teams of students will build program and be judged through timing and efficiency measures. Education will be provided via micro-credentialing through another ARM Project, SMART. A key component of this competition is keeping the cost low for participants, providing high-quality STEM education opportunities to those who may otherwise be unable to afford similar training.


Introduce essential robotics skills training and opportunities in manufacturing to students, building the manufacturing workforce pipeline.

Technical Approach
