SAAST Robolympics

Event Dates:
  Thursday July 26, 2012 at 10:00pm

This summer we've had 36 eager high-school students participating in the SAAST Robotics program, and Thursday, July 26th at 6:00 p.m. they will take to the Wu & Chen stage to show off the amazing things that they've managed to accomplish in just three weeks!  The theme for this year's competition is the Robolympics, complete with three events, including IR-guided archery, a curvy line-follower, and a long jump (for further details, see http://medesign.seas.upenn.edu/index.php/Courses/SAAST12-Project).  All of the autonomous robotic solutions have been designed and built by the students, including SolidWorks, laser cutting, circuit design, programming in C for the maevarm microcontroller, and much more.  They have accomplished so much in such a short period of time, and I'm sure that they would appreciate your support tomorrow evening!
