This semester's theme for the MCHE 201 competition is Indiana Jones. Students have been working in teams to create a robot to accomplish a series of tasks including Collect Sankara Stones, Retrieve the Holy Grail, Put the Ark of the Covenant in the University Museum, Collect Gold Idols, Save Indy's Hat, and Keep Shia LaBeouf Away. Each task will either earn the team points or take away points. The team to come out on top will be named the winner. For more information about the contest and pictures of the students' progress, see the class website.
The contest will take place on Monday, November 19, 2018 in Blackham Coliseum. Before competing, attendees and judges will have time from 5-6PM to see the devices and ask the teams about their design. The competition will immediately follow.
