The same technology in action at Saturday's fair is currently used by Ford's Michigan Proving Ground to improve safety and reliability in vehicle durability testing.
We're trying to promote...the skills we need in future engineers.

Utah State University, BATC, and Mountain Crest High School supplied robots that had recently seen action in the VEX Robotics
tournament circuit. The VEX tournaments attract thousands of future engineering students from all over the world. With the robot they brought to the fair, Mountain Crest's team won the Utah State title in 2014 and placed 22nd in their division at the World competition.
