Photos from Philly Robotics Expo 2015 trip

The Yaliens Robotics Team attended the Philly Robotics Expo for the  second year in a row at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Team members participated in robotics workshops, saw demonstrations in the GRASP Robotics Lab and got to meet students from other teams in the area.

Robotics Field Trip To NextFAB

The YALE Robotics Team today took a field trip to the NextFAB lab in Philadelphia. NextFAB allows anyone to use advanced technology such as 3D Printers, metal and woodworking equipment, and advanced software which normally would be unavailable to most people.

After a short tour of NextFAB, we learned how 3D printers work and about the software that powers them, called SolidWorks. We learned about creating 2D blueprints and extruding them to 3D. After that, we were given the second half of the class to create whatever we wanted with a partner.

New Jersey Snowday Showdown

Students made huge progress as a first time competitor.  Each competition you see them rise higher and higher with the help of many other schools.  At this competition we placed 15th out of the 30 teams.
