The Durham Programmabulls is a group of students from Durham, NC who are participating in NASA's 2018 Swarmathon competition. We program small rovers to perform search and gathering tasks and gather research that will assist NASA as they develop plans to colonize Mars. This is a fantastic opportunity for our team to get hands on experience with high-level engineering projects, NASA protocols, research, and marketing.
In April of 2018 we will be travelling to Kennedy Space Center in Florida to compete in the physical competition against more than a dozen other colleges. In order to be able to make the trip we need to raise funds for airfare, hotels, rental cars, and supplies to aid in the testing of our rovers. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by March so we can get take as many students as possible to the competition.
