Hello, and welcome to the official page of Indiana Tech's Explorer Post #2829! We are a robotics club aimed at the high school level and up. There are both high school and post-secondary students involved in our program, with knowledge ranging from those who are just taking their first steps into robotics to those who are able to design their own systems entirely from scratch.
This site can be navigated using the links bar along the top of the page. Some things you might want to try out include creating an account, dropping us a comment on the forums, and checking out some photos and videos of our robots in action! On the About page is information about the robots, the competitions, the sumo categories and the maze categories.

The 2012 National Robotics Challenge is over and Indiana Tech Explorers gave quite a showing! We came back with seven new plaques, three of them first places. The three gold awards were for heavyweight sumo in the high school division, mini sumo in the post secondary division and tactile maze in the post secondary division. Everyone had a great time and we look forward to next year's competition. Watch this space for our video from NRC!
Just a reminder that the next meeting is NOT next week, but the week after that. The calendar now has the correct dates on it.
Also, we have the Boy Scout Camporee coming up, and we will need lots of people if it is to be a success. Mark your calendars!

Two new members joined: Jacob Malott and Max Scheitlin, plus Julie Lee officially became an adult advisor.The first-year members got their Parallax BoeBot kits and Rick Brooks began to teach how to program them. Meanwhile the returning members worked on plans for the Heavyweight Sumo. Popcorn sales were discussed, and plans for the Maker Faire at Headwaters Park on October 1-2 were made.
