CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State University Robotics Club members are international champions for their design of a Mars rover.
The club won the Canadian International Rover Challenge earlier this summer. Some of the schools they beat out include Harvard and the University of Washington.
Oregon State Instructor Matthew Shuman said the robotics team and the Mars rover participated in various tasks similar to what astronauts do on a daily basis.
"(I'm) incredibly proud of these students for organizing themselves, for getting themselves to Canada, for building this robot, designing it, and executing great," Shuman said. "They did phenomal against the competition, and now they have so many opportunities."
He said they're always looking for new members to join.
Their first robotics meeting will be held sometime later this month.
