We left off with the Scarlet Space Hawks as they launched their student organization and secured their funding to build their robot. Before the team could travel to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and place third in the mining category of the NASA Robotic Mining Competition (RMC), they needed to build their robot.

When Pedro Morales (EE, 4th year) and Shawn Zachariah (EE, 4th year) stepped foot on NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) at the end of last May, it was the culmination of months of planning, recruiting, building, and testing. The two students are the founding members of the Scarlet Space Hawks, the first Illinois Institute of Technology team to compete in NASA’s Annual Robotic Mining Competition (RMC).
