TYESA-Robot Competition Today

Today in the R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center atrium, engineering science students from across New York state will test their skills and creativity in the TYESA-Robot Competition. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please stop by and show your support of participating students who rose to this significant challenge. 

The students' objective is to design and build an autonomous robot that can transport one blue barrel from Spain to each of six islands visited by Christopher Columbus and return one red barrel from each island to Spain. The robots will have a maximum time of 90 seconds in each of their four allotted trials. The robot must begin within an 8” X 12” X 10” high size limit but may expand to any size during a trial. An Exhibit Session will precede the robot trials.
