During the 2017/2018 school year, the Robotics Club is working on a Search and Rescue Robot, which will autonomously seek out people in danger (in the form of sandbags) in a simulated natural disaster. The club will be showing the robot at the 2018 Spring Engineering Expo.
The club meets every Monday (when classes are held) at 5PM in Daktronics Engineering Hall 118.
