Missouri S&T’s newest student design team earned second place at BotsKC, a robotic fighting competition held in April in Pleasant Valley, Missouri. The Combat Robotics Design Team, formed in spring 2020, joined the contest with its first robot build.
In addition to earning second place overall out of 26 teams, S&T’s team earned third in robot battles and first in engineering documentation. S&T’s robot, named Ankle Grinder, competed in the 15-pound division and fought in several rounds against other teams’ robots.
