spring McC students compete for glory and prizes, running
their robots against competitors and a challenging track.
This year's competition will be on Saturday May 17, 2014. The competition starts at noon, and usually runs about 3 hours. It's held at the Ford Engineering Design Center, 2133 Sheridan Rd, Evanston. (map)
Teams of students design, build, and program their robots to operate autonomously. Often teams are cross-departmental, and students of all years work together, learning from one another. There is a lot of support provided, so no one should be reluctant to participate for lack of technical expertise. And you can be sure you will gain a lot more in the process. Course credit is available if desired.
DC is run by its participants and other interested students. You can be both a participant and an organizer. In the spirit of transparency you can keep informed and contribute to planning, deliberations and discussion of rules, etc.
