For the first time, the statewide FIRST robotics competition was hosted by Missouri S&T this past Saturday. High school teams competed with robots they had built in a series of battle-style games. During the competition, high school students and other visitors were encouraged to look around at the student design teams displays, including the Missouri S&T Solar House Team. There was a great turnout and many hopefully-future students were eager to hear about our team's project!
"The Department of Energy and the Department of the Interior today announced that the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011 will be held at the National Mall's West Potomac Park, on the banks of the Potomac River along the path between the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials. Specifically, the event will be held on the peninsula just south of the new Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial - scheduled to open in August of this year - between the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the Potomac River. The Decathlon will begin in late September as originally scheduled." Read the rest of the press release at: http://www.solardecathlon.gov/blog/archives/731
