Autonomous robotics class integrates theory and practice

Students programmed robots to autonomously navigate an unknown cityscape and aid in a simulated rescue of animals in peril in a class that mimics the programming needed for autonomous cars or robots of the future.

Students learn to make delivery drones

In a reimagining of an already popular course, students fly prototypes of drone delivery systems on quadcopters and design winged drones for long-range flights.

New class encourages creativity in science

Rather than having students learn and memorize established knowledge, professors Steven Block and Tim Stearns created a course to teach students how to think like scientists and pursue new answers.
