Bubble Soccer First Meet!

Bubble soccer, is the recreation/sport of playing football while encased in an inflated torus, similar to a zorb, which covers the player’s upper body and head. This game is typically played in teams in large indoor spaces or outdoor fields. Bubble bump football follows the same objectives and overall rules as regular football (i.e., teams compete to hit a ball into the opposing team's goal) with the added condition that each player must wear an inflatable bubble, similar to a water ball, around their upper torso.

This event will be massive fun for everyone! Come on in for a relaxing time!

RED Robotics: MRDC

The Midwestern Robotics Design Competition (MRDC) is an annual robotics competition at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) where engineering students from around the country design and build robots to compete in a game. Each year, a new game objective is created that tests the skills of the teams in creative design and functionality. Teams spend nearly a year designing and constructing their robot for the event, after which students from universities nationwide travel to the UIUC Engineering Open House in March to compete in the 2,000 sq ft arena for the exciting two-day event. MRDC is a popular event that attracts thousands of spectators to take in the action each day. The Midwestern Robotics Design Competition is made possible by the hard work from the MRDC Committee at UIUC.

Support the team!
