2017 Student Design Competition:
The Robot Pentathlon: Citius, Altius, Ingenious
The Olympic Summer Games test the abilities of people throughout the world in a wide variety of athletic challenges. The athlete that wins the Olympic decathlon or heptathlon is referred to as the world’s greatest male or female athlete.
The 2017 Student Design Competition challenges your technical design skills to create a robot that is fast, strong, and agile. Your team must build a remotely controlled device to compete against others in five different events – a robot pentathlon. Scores from each of the events will be combined to determine the overall champion.

Manufacturing the Future
Manufacturing plays an essential role in innovation. The field of manufacturing accounts for the majority of private research and development spending and employs a significant percentage of engineers . In order for society to benefit from the latest advances in technology, skilled engineers and novel manufacturing techniques will be required.
This year's challenge is to build a compact engineering system in order to manufacture a projectile from a standard sheet of paper and test it by propelling it a maximum distance. The testing will take place on a competition course that consists of a 3 meter wide strip along the length of the room, with a 1.5-m x 3-m setup area for your system at one end.
