We are very excited to have the South Eugene Robotics Team (SERT) as makers! Founded in 2007, the team competes each year in the FIRST Robotics Competition, a worldwide contest for high school students.
Each year, students design and build robots to complete specific missions with limited materials and a tight time frame. They compete in regional and international matches, including the Autodesk Oregon Regional held in Portland in March.
This year’s competition was entitled “Rebound Rumble,” and required students to create a robot that could shoot basketballs and balance on a platform. You can see a video of SERT’s robot (2521) in action below.
If you’d like to see this amazing robot, and its even more amazing creators, in person, join us for the Eugene Mini Maker Faire on June 16th at the Science Factory!
