Penn Robotic Soccer Team Reigns Supreme

The University of Pennsylvania’s robotic soccer team now has another world championship trophy to add to its collection.
Coached by Daniel Lee, director of the School of Engineering and Applied Science’s GRASP Lab, the team consists of Steve McGill, Larry Abraham, Karen He, Seung-Joon Yi, Dickens He, Chris Akatsuka, Junda Zhu, Sagar Poudel and Jianqiao Li.
They accomplished this feat at RoboCup, an annual event that brings the top robotics programs from around the world to face off against one another in a test of a variety of engineering disciplines. This year’s event was held in João Pessoa, Brazil, and featured hundreds of students from 45 countries.
