New robotics field broadens access in region – Park Rapids Enterprise

The Northern Minnesota Robotics Conference (NMRC) has purchased a robotics competition field to be deployed across northern Minnesota and eastern North Dakota.

The NMRC covers more than 35,000 square miles. For the vast majority of teams, access to a fully functional robotics field other than during competition is virtually nonexistent.

For the past eight years, the Nevis High School team has worked to help area teams by giving

them access to their robotics field throughout the season. They have hosted both kickoff events and scrimmages before the competition portion of each FIRST Robotics competition season. The have also transported, set up, and run this field for teams to practice on during large-scale, regional robotics competitions in Duluth and Grand Forks.

With financial support from Sourcewell, a cooperative purchasing organization based in Staples, the NMRC has been able to purchase a new competition field that will be available for various events in the region.
