Advisor Mega Prizes
SkillsUSA is launching a 100 percent membership campaign to honor those advisors who are able to enroll all eligible students in their SkillsUSA chapter. As an incentive, several of our national partners are offering "mega prizes" for selected 100 percent advisors.

The Gears Combat Robot is created using a base HMC belt-driven platform, and is one of the toughest robots on the market. This platform is made with rugged, industrial- strength components and is quick and easy to construct. Students can integrate their own control systems as well as sensors and other accessories, which makes it ideal for robotics competitions.
The Combat Robot weighs less than 10 pounds and is capable of withstanding 200 lbs. of standing weight. It is also the platform used by many schools that compete in the National Robotics League (NRL).
