The Student Wildcats of Robotic Design hosted its Fall Robot Competition in Penn College’s Field House on Saturday, a popular seasonal display of teamwork, problem-solving and flat-out excitement.

Topping the Beetleweight class (3-pound robots) were “Thunder Child,” first place; “Cortex,” second; and “Adrift,” third.
