Penn College Hosting ‘S.W.O.R.D. Fights’


Robots will duel for supremacy at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

The Student Wildcats of Robotic Design club is hosting “Fall 2017 S.W.O.R.D Fights,” beginning at 8 a.m. on Nov. 18 in the college’s Field House. The event requires participants to design, fabricate and test robots before “fighting” in either 1-pound or 3-pound weight categories.
