Toyota Indiana Partnering with UE for Changemaker Challenges and Robotic Football

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana recently made a gift of $35,000 to UE to support the High School and Community Changemaker Challenges and Robotic Football, a new engineering senior design project. Working with Mark Randall, assistant professor of electrical engineering, four current students are designing and building the first two players (quarterback and running back) of the eventual team which will compete in the College Robotic Football Conference founded at Notre Dame. This spring the players will compete in the CRFC combine, and other players will be built by future senior project groups, members of UEFirst and local high schools students. The goal is for a full UE team to compete by the spring 2022 competition. UE is grateful to Toyota Indiana for their support and partnership on these exciting projects!
