Olivia Sribniak and Anthony Gyke, senior electro-mechanical engineering technology (EMET) students at Penn State New Kensington, set up their Arduino microcontroller for their automated roping robot. The concept, which started as their senior EMET design project, has also earned them a finalist spot in the 2018 Inc.U entrepreneurship competition. Their prototype is part of their official startup known formally as "Steer Logic."
