A student in Penn College’s manufacturing engineering technology major will compete on ABC’s “BattleBots” when the popular series begins its second season at 8 p.m. Thursday. Alexander J. Horne, of West Chester, co-designed and built the 250-pound robot – named SubZero – that will face off for Team Hammertime in the show’s opening round. An article about Horne (and his longtime fascination with bot-building) was published in a recent edition of his hometown paper, the Daily Local News.
