Bill Padnos and Sarah Brooks share the following about the NRL program:

Some students begin in early elementary years with STEM-related activities, and then begin participating in BotsIQ in middle and high school years.

The students learn to work as a team and are often offered internships and even full-time jobs in partnering manufacturing companies as a result of the program.

Students learn every aspect of the manufacturing process during their projects: securing funding, beginning designs, marketing, testing, refining, documentation, and time and project management.

When students are immersed in the manufacturing process, they begin to realize that they could “do this for a living.”

Students learn that most jobs in manufacturing don’t require a four-year college degree, and some jobs are available to them immediately after high school.

Many of the partnering companies recruit employees from the high school competitors
