ATMAE Student Group Competes in St. Louis
The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) Student Chapter at Millersville University (aka MU Robotics Team) recently competed in the 2014 National ATMAE Robotics Competition held in St. Louis, MO.
This year teams from around the country were challenged to develop a small robot that could do four different tasks: kick a football through a goal post, sprint a dash race event, lift a specified dumbbell weight, and collect as many golf balls as possible while traversing a marathon track event. This year’s MU robot was named TOM (Tele-operated Marauder). The challenge this year was more of an mechanical engineering/design problem where the difficulty lied in how to design a custom robot to perform all four tasks in a small specified footprint/size. Each year the ATMAE National Robotics Competition issues a brand new competition challenging teams from around the country.
Twenty-five students and three advisors of the Technology & Engineering Education Collegiate Association (TEECA@MU) attended the TEECA Eastern Regional Conference in Virginia Beach November 9-11, 2014. TEECA@MU paricipated in nine skill competitions and placed in seven of them.
