Red River ALC Robotics Team Competing In Bison BEST Competition Oct. 28-29

Genetically engineered flies, cockroaches and termites have escaped from the laboratory. A robot is needed to recover these bugs and place them in one of three containment areas. This is the challenge that the Red River Area Learning Center’s robotics team will tackle at this year’s Bison BEST robotics competition sponsored by NDSU’s College of Engineering and Architecture on Oct. 28-29 at the Fargo Civic Center.

The Red River ALC team has had six weeks to design, build and test a radio-controlled robot. On Oct. 29 between 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., the team will compete against more than 20 other teams from Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Canada to complete the bug-recovery task. Supporters are encouraged to attend and cheer on the Red River ALC  team.
