Calling all current and future RoboJackets members! RoboJackets is holding its General Interest Meetings on Tuesday, September 6 and Wednesday, September 7 at 6:00pm in Howey L4. Any student interested in joining RoboJackets should attend one of the two meetings, which will feature the same content.
This is the meeting where we’ll tell interested students all about our different teams, the projects we’ll be working on this year, and when we’ll be meeting this semester. If you can’t make it, don’t worry! We’ll be sending out all of the information to our general mailing list, which you can join here.
Pizza and drinks will be provided.
Please RSVP by clicking the day you plan on attending.
Our RoboCup team traveled to Leipzig, Germany for the 20th annual RoboCup competition. We learned a lot for next year and had a lot of fun! We look forward to next year’s RoboCup competition in Japan, where we plan on improving our new fleet of robots!
