Team Air

Team Air is a fairly new team in EDT. It was created 3 years ago, by Crista Mondragon, who is an Alumni member, and Mohammad Mohammad, currently a senior member. We are a team that builds aerial robots. In past three years Team Air has competed in two different competitions. The first competition was International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC) in 2018 and the Midwest Robotics Design Competition (MRDC) in 2019.

Currently Team Air is going to compete in the Midwest Robotics Design Competition (MRDC). Due to the Covid-19 causing MRDC 2020 to be cancelled, Team Air is currently continuing our plans under the assumption MRDC 2021 is the same competition. More information click here.

Team Air is currently working on a new hexacopter drone design for MRDC. This project is ambitious and exciting because it is new territory for Team Air. We are looking forward to having new members and growing our team. We encourage our team members to take the challenge with us in making a historical moment for Team Air.
