Rich East Manufacturing, Engineering, and Robotics Club (M.E.R.) Competition
Saturday the Rich East Manufacturing, Engineering, and Robotics Club (M.E.R.) students and some students from the robotics class went down to ISU in Normal to compete in their first robotics competition. The students did an amazing job. They completed a total of 21 matches without a single robot malfunction (They were the only two teams to do this). The students were the underdogs at the event but they qualified 11th (TeamB) and 15th(TeamA) place out of 25. This was good enough to get them into the Elimination matches where they finished 6th(TeamB) and 8th(TeamA). If you get a chance please congratulate the students below because they were awesome this weekend.
