Do you know how to build a robot? Can you build one that collects tennis/ping pong/golf balls? How about one that floats, and one that skims the bottom of a pool? #NSLCENGN students now know how to do all of the above.

Students worked in teams to build Sea Perches, which are motor-powered robots. Each team built two – one to collect golf balls at the bottom of a pool and the other to collect ping pong and tennis balls on the surface of the water. Each type of ball was worth a different amount of points, and the team whose robot was able to collect the highest point value in five minutes won the competition.
