The Battle of the 'Bots

Caltech Holds 32nd Annual Engineering Design Competition

Held on Beckman Mall on March 9, Caltech's 32nd Annual Engineering Design Competition featured teams of robots and their handlers battling for the best times navigating a "Robstacle Course."

The V15TA team—Yunsang Choi, Mayra Melendez, Allison Penn, Eduardo Plascencia, and William Yu—won first place by having its robots successfully traverse 27 pylons, a seesaw, and a ramp to deliver a ball into a hole at the end of the course.
