RoboSpartans Think Outside the Bot with EKOCYCLE

  Last week, a group of New York area robotics students, the RoboSpartans, competed against 72 of the East Coast’s best robotics teams to earn one of 24 invitations to the FIRST Tech Challenge World Championship in St. Louis slotted for later this month. The team made their robot, named Leonidas, using a standard kit of parts, raw material hardware store findings, and their EKOCYCLE Cube 3D printer, which they received as both tool and inspiration to “think outside the bot.”
