Please Join SPS (Society of Physics Students) for the first build meeting of the semester. This will include a meet and greet in 281 for new members and a tour of the Physics Machine Shop where most of the building will take place. There will be pizza and soda. SPS will be attempting to enter the 2019 roboboat competition. The goal is to build an autonomous boat that can perform several tasks.
