Tuesday Events

Engineering students will put their 1/10th scale autonomous vehicles to the test in a competition at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research in Greenville. From 1 to 2:30 p.m., 39 students on 10 teams will put the cars they built on a course on which the vehicles need to recognize road signs – stop signs, school zone signs, etc. – and take appropriate actions autonomously. Images and videos from last year’s competition are online. For information, contact Yunyi Jia (, 864-283-7226).

Biologist Mike Sears will present “The Climate It Is A-Changin’” in a Science on Tap talk at 6:30 p.m. at Coffee Underground, 1 E. Coffee St., Greenville. Sears researches how animals respond to environmental change and how these responses might affect future species’ ranges due to ongoing climate change.
