Crazy machines that can do amazing things: they were on display Saturday at the Rushmore Mall in Rapid City as part of a display put on by students from the School of Mines. The program is called CAMP, which stands for Center For Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing and Production. It's intended to get students thinking about new ways to design, build, and market things while working in teams. The students displayed boats, cars, aircraft and other machines that may have commercial potential. Preston Cook says, "Essentially what our robot has to do is navigate an obstacle course. Kind of themed after a road construction, or like a road accident or a car crash." The students will be available again tomorrow to explain their projects to shoppers and strollers at the Rushmore Mall.
