CSM Collegiate Robotics Team Scores Tournament Champion Award at Purdue University

Talons at PurdueCollege of Southern Maryland collegiate robotics team, the Talons, won the Tournament Champion Award and the Excellence Award at Purdue University’s robotics competition Jan. 26 in West Lafayette, Indiana. "This was the most challenging competition yet as they were up against some big universities — Purdue University and University of Illinois, Urbana, as well as Marion Technical College," said CSM Professor Bernice Brezina who is the team's faculty advisor and coach. "Purdue was the team to beat. Their robots were exceptional, but the Talons' were better," she said of the team's two robots that were built, programmed and tested by the CSM team.

The Excellence Award was judged by Purdue University engineering and computer science professors and is the highest level award of VEX Robotics competition given to the top all-around team in robot performance and judging. The award earned at an official VEX Robotics competition puts the Talons in the running to contend for the Excellence Award at the VEX Robotics World Championship Anaheim, California in April.
