Students Host Combat Bot Competition


Pine-Richland High School hosted the Sixth Annual Combat Bots Competition on April 27, 2016.  Pine-Richland School District invited several other high schools to participate including Connellsville, Fox Chapel, South Fayette and Springdale.

Leading up to the competition, students spent a good deal of time designing, engineering, and manufacturing their robots, which had to weigh in at four pounds or less and contain a secure battery.

Students enthusiastically cheered on their teammates. The goal is to knock each competitor’s robot out of service in an enclosed space.

The program was held in the PRHS STEAM wing (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics).
