The Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources at West Virginia University has many stories about advancements in research, innovation, and technology within our campus, but our research effects so many outside of our walls. Learn about what our faculty are doing to solve problems, create ideas and how you can get involved to help those in our community and around the world.
How often do you go out at night and just look up at the moon? Do you think about the first men to walk on its surface, or what it might be like to live there? Well, you’re not alone. On the first episode of Let’s Go… Engineers! we sat down with the WVU Robotics Team to hear more about the final round of the NASA Centennial Space Robotics Challenge, where they are working on critical robotics technology to help establish a future lunar base. Hear from team leader Assistant Professor Jason Gross and Ph.D. students Cagri Kilic, Christopher Tatsch and Bernardo Martinez, as we talk about all things Space Robotics Challenge, science fiction, and the robotics program. Join us and Let’s Go!
