Of the thousands of ways robots can be used today, teaching them to play soccer may not seem to be one of the best ones; but this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM tells you how a research program at USF's College of Engineering that culminates in a match between two teams of robots built out of Legos is increasing knowledge while drawing new students to the subject.
