Robot Judging

Nora Paul was one of the judges of the Mechanical Engineering department's annual Student Robots Show.

On December 10th INMS Director Nora Paul was one of the judges of the Mechanical Engineering department's Student Robots Show. Two hundred and ten students from the ME2011 class demonstrated their projects, machines which would "do something interesting." From a machine which opened a combination lock to a marimba playing robot to a simple ferris wheel, each of the entries demonstrated the students' requirement to build a computer controlled machine that does something. The auditorium of the Alumni Center was filled with students, judges, and the curious - all enjoyed the experience of meeting with the students and playing with the clever and, sometimes, complex inventions.
