Thank You

Several days ago the School of Computer Science's Roboticon crowdfunding campaign met its target, and we'd like to thank everyone who has helped make the campaign a success.

The goal of the campaign was to raise $1500 to fund the purchase of 3 new LEGO Mindstorm EV3 kits. With your help, we've met our goal. Even better, the Dean of the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences is matching the donations - which means we'll be able to purchase 6 new kits, and invite more schools to the annual Roboticon event.
