Regional Botball Tournament at SIUE a Success SIUE Constructors Club Helps Clean Up Washington

The Daniela Rus Team from Wabash Valley in Terre Haute, Ind., won the 2014 annual Greater St. Louis Botball Tournament on Sat., April 12.

Twenty-one teams competed in the Morris University Center Meridian Ballroom before a crowd of more than 150 throughout the day.

This year's theme was assistive robotics. Building on last year's theme of a Mars Sample Return Mission, the robots had to help Botguy recover from the long journey in space.

The SIUE Constructors Club spent Spring Break in Washington, Ill., providing volunteer aid as the community continues to recover from last year's devastating tornado.

Mason Musick, a senior School of Engineering student from Lincoln, Ill., wrote a description of the group's experience.
