Robotic football is a practical application of the theory taught in classes.

Over the past month, an international team of researchers have descended on Portugal's Vale Do Cobrão near the Spanish border to study the valley's wind flow patterns. The project, known as Perdigão after the closest town, is funded by the National Science Foundation and involves more than 50 atmospheric scientists working to better understand how wind moves over variable terrain. The results will benefit weather forecasting and wind energy efforts.
