FIRST Robotics

 This project is not for the weak or ill tempered. The team of Clarkson students from many different majors and area high school students have only six weeks to design and build a remotely controlled robot that competes in a sporting-like event. For those who like to lead a less intense lifestyle, there are opportunities for web design, computer animation, and public relations.
