Competitors wait their turn at the 2.007 Design and Manufacturing competition held Wednesday and Thursday evening in Johnson. Students in the 2.007 course had one semester to build and design a radio-controlled robot to compete in this year’s challenge, “Operation 2.007.” Robots could earn points during two-minute matches by completing various tasks based on medical procedures, such as removing an instrument from the leg of Tim the Beaver, or measuring the magnetic field in his brain to imitate an MRI scan.
