The Robotics Club is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) club founded in 2022. The club allows students to apply their knowledge to real-world situations.

“The club is intended to teach students about STEM in physical and applicable real-world scenarios, with a focus on robotics,” said Arthur Aznive (’23), the president and founder of the Robotics Club.

The Robotics Club has around 30 members. When asked about the club’s goals, Aznive said, “We want to teach people how to apply theory and understand how the real world works in terms of software, mechanics, and physics.”

Vice President of the Robotics Club, Joe Sedutto, also talked about what the club has to offer.

“We want to push practical hands-on stuff a lot, focused on getting people to use what they learn here at SNHU. I personally feel like a lot of stuff taught at SNHU isn’t applied enough in classes, so we’re aiming to improve that by offering a club where students of any major can apply their skills,” said Sedutto.

The Robotics Club is currently working on the Micro Mouse robot; when finished these robots will be able to find their way through a maze. On March 4th and 5th, the club built an 8ft by 8ft table maze for the Micro Mouse robot.

With the Robotics Club being a new club, Aznive and Sedutto both have big plans.

“We want to pursue more exhibition robotics (for entertainment, show, and competition bots) (e.g., sumo bots and battle bots),” says Aznive. “Ideally, we want to compete competitively in Battle Bots and be able to show off our robots here at SNHU.”

The Robotics Club meets weekly on Tuesdays at 5pm in the CETA main foyer. For more information, email President Arthur Aznive at arthur.aznive@snhu.edu, or join the club’s Discord Server.
