Robotics Team Reaches For Ping-Pong Prize

Mike Uphoff, a senior from Monticello studying industrial technology, aligns a laser pointer Tuesday onto a robot named Derecho during a Registered Student Organization meeting at the Engineering Building. Derecho, built by the SIU Chapter of the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering, or ATMAE, collects colored ping pong balls and sorts them according to color. Uphoff, ATMAE vice president, and 11 other members will take Derecho to Nashville, Tenn., Friday to compete in the ATMAE national robotics competition. — Tiffany Blanchette | Daily Egyptian
