Project Description: 

This system is meant to capture the attention of potential students and generate interest in the MIME program. This launcher is a subsystem designed to be retrofit onto a larger system named the “Bennybot” robotic mascot. The larger overall “Bennybot” system is handled by MIME.800. The launch system has one Nema-17 motor, a bearing, fasteners and the rest are custom components manufactured in the shops in the basement of Rogers Hall. This subsystem was originally conceptualized as a t-shirt launcher. Due to budget limitations, the decision to downsize was made.
