RGSC End of Semester Celebration

January 3, 2017
As a way to celebrate the end of the semester and the holiday season and take a break from exam studies, RGSC held a White Elephant gift exchange party. Enthusiasm and the holiday spirit were high, and everybody had a relaxing and fun time, as we enjoyed food, socializing, presents, and a lot of laughs. This is likely to become an annual event for the robotics group.
Michigan Robotics students wish you a Happy New Year!

Whirly Ball for Masters!

October 7, 2016

The Robotics Graduate Student Council held a fun and active evening of Whirly Ball for Masters students in the Robotics program. Using one hand to control the bumper car and the other to throw and catch the ball, the students quickly transitioned from struggling to play to an intense competition. As athletes but still engineers, the conversations during breaks turned to discussions about the mechanisms driving the cars. Overall, the Whirly Ball outing was a great day to relieve stress and bond with other Robotics students.
