Purdue’s robotics teams dominate, often facing each other in the finals

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Purdue University robotics team, SIGBots, have performed exceptionally well this season and plan to keep up their skills at the 2022 VEX Robotics World Tournament in May.

SIGBots consists of Purdue students of all grades and majors working towards building bots that participate in the yearly Vex Robotics competitions. This year’s game, “Tipping Point,” focuses on gathering the most amount of rings on “mobile goals.” A full description of this year’s game can be found in the competition’s announcement video.

“This (past) weekend at our home competition,” Micah Rassi, SIGBots president and junior in robotics engineering technology, said, “we were, again, against each other in the finals of the bracket. And we were first and second in the skills challenge. So, we’re consistently dominant when it comes to tournaments we attend and the teams we’re playing against. And this is, you know, the highest level of competition against other, you know, engineering colleges. “
