|Emory's Robotics Club is in full motion.|
|Published Date: 2011-11-17|
The Emory Robotics and Computer Engineering Club (eRACE) is an undergraduate organization at Emory University that provides students with the knowledge, skills, and resources to develop their own robots. The club's mission is simply to bring engineering to Emory through robotics and encourage learning beyond the classroom. Far from exclusive, the organization has brought together students from a breadth of disciplines including business, chemistry, math, english, and of course, computer science.
Led by senior CS major Brandon Lock, the club has organized a series of tutorials designed to allow any student to participate in the club. During the Fall 2011 semester, the club has hosted events ranging from building cardboard robotic arms capable of picking up weighted bottles to creating squishy circuits from home-made, conductive play dough to programming Arduino microcontrollers, the widely used electronics prototyping platform. Throughout these events, club members build skills in mechanical principles and structures, basic electronics, and computer programming.
In the upcoming spring 2012 semester, the club plans to continue their activities by building a variety of robotic and engineering projects designed, planned, and implemented by team members. Unlike other robotics clubs that are restricted by strict plans and guidelines, eRACE is free to create anything its members desire.
Meetings are open to all students regardless of major or skill level. Contact Brandon Lock at block [@] emory.edu or follow the club on Facebook.
