For six weeks, the 210 college students in the introductory design course in Mechanical Engineering design and build their own robot. Their task is to create a machine which "does something useful".
The results of their efforts will be on public display at the Robot Show. It is the largest collection of robots assembled in one place in the Twin Cities and is fun for kids of all ages. The show is free and is open to the public. It is run like an open house, so you can come for any or all of it. We invite you to join us for this exciting event.
