Tonight MIT students in the class 6.270 will be competing with their autonomous robots. 6.270 was a course designed to give Course 6ers (electrical engineering/computer science) a chance to have a similar competition as the infamous 2.007 course designed by Woodie Flowers for the Course 2 kids (mechanical engineering). Over IAP, the January Independent Activities Period, the students build autonomous robots to compete in a competition and the public is invited to watch the tournament.
The event is from 6 to 9 PM in Building 26. Info here.
(In other news, apologies for all the Boston-local event info lately... please feel free to send us events in other locales and we'll be happy to post them!)
