MSET hopes to inspire future engineers

Hoping to draw new student engineers and parent volunteers, the Mechanical Science and Engineering Team (M-SET) held an open house on Aug. 25. 
The club, led by president senior Mihir Iyer and vice presidents sophomore Kabir Manghnani and seniors Ivan France and Alex Renda, held the event in the robotics corner of the music quad. The officers set up stations for people interested in rocketry, the FIRST Tech Challenge, the TECH Challenge and the FIRST Robotics Competition, giving students a chance to sign up for the team before Club Day. The open house also provided students and parents an opportunity to get clarification on any questions that they may have. 
To help create excitement for the club, every team in MSET brought out their designs. This gave students and parents a first-hand experience on the work that goes into building each design and the end result of all the grueling work.
“The open house went amazingly well,”  Manghnani said. “We were packed with excited and enthusiastic kids who really wanted to be a part of the club.” 
Even though the team is looking for new innovative members to help build future robots, the team is still currently in competition with last season’s robot, Tobiko. After reaching the semi-finals at the Silicon Valley Regional last spring, the robotics team hopes to win this year’s Cal Games on Oct. 4 and 5.
"We are doing a lot of prep and  I feel confident our robot is ready for anything," Iyer said.
