AWT RoboBots Battle

AWT RoboBots Battle

Libra Industries, a privately held electronics manufacturing services provider, recently participated in the fourth annual AWT RoboBots Battle at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, OH. Libra Industries has participated in the event every year since its inception by building a RoboBot with a local student.

AWT stands for the Alliance for Working Together. Each team was paired with a local manufacturing company to put their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) skills to the test. One of Libra Industries’ engineers, Ken Kay, coached the Mentor High School students and Jennifer Kiminas, Libra Industries’ Marketing & Communications Manager, is a lead chair for the competition.

While designing, building and battling a 15-pound combat robot, students develop technical skills that can lead to internship and career opportunities. The competition is a double-elimination tournament. Two teams fight each other in three-minute battles. The winner is the last robot standing or the team earning the most points for aggression, control and damage.

Libra Industries is an active member in the electronics community that continues to provide customized manufacturing solutions to help make its customers more competitive and improve their profitability. For more information, visit www.libraind.com.
