Black Women at Spelman Among the World’s Elite in Robotics Technology

The Spelman College Robotics Team finished tied for first place in the U.S. Robocup competition held recently at Georgia Tech. The Spelman squad built a team of robotic dogs which play soccer against teams from other colleges and universities. The Spelman team is now competing with 350 teams from 40 countries in the world championships in Germany.

The Spelman College team is the only all-female, all-black undergraduate robotics team in the world.
