About the National Robotics League 

The National Robotics League (NRL) is a combat robotics league where students design and build remote controlled robots to face-off in competition. Through the process of robot building, student's imaginations are engaged as they design, build and compete with their own robotic creations; and through this hands-on effort, gain practical knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) - all essential skills for a career in manufacturing.

The NRL is the only combat robotics league that formalizes ties between competitor teams and manufacturing partners. The bonus, for both sides, is that those ties have a way of leading to other things. Competitors get turned on to the career possibilities in manufacturing. Manufacturers build valuable industry-school connections by helping competitors engineer a lean, mean, fighting machine. Everybody wins, regardless of the result in the arena. 


Our Support of the National Robotics League

Steven Tamasi, CEO of Boston Centerless, has been involved in efforts to connect the educational world with industry for 25 years. When he was first introduced to the National Robotics League, he recognized this program was not only fun and engaging for students, but it also had great potential for educators to work together with industry professionals to to build tomorrow's technology leaders, right here in the United States.

Steven is currently the acting Commissioner of the NRL. He and Boston Centerless have supported the program in a variety of ways, from promoting and developing new programs around the country to sponsoring the national competitions to providing financial and in-kind support to the Winchester High School Robotics Team and the regional NRL program in the Greater Boston area.


The extensive energy Boston Centerless puts into the NRL as a vehicle for giving back to the industry and the community is in direct alignment with its Core Purpose, “To be a Role Model for US Manufacturing".
