Woodie Flowers, Course 2.70 Introduction to Design Competition (1981)

Professor Woodie Flowers, of the MIT Mechanical Engineering department, hosts the 1981 competition for his famous "Introduction to Design" class -- perhaps MIT's most influential engineering course. The challenge is described in the syllabus: to “design and build a robotic system for putting a round peg in a square hole, while a competing system tries to put another peg into the same hole.” Known originally as Course 2.70, this particular year's competition was called "The MIT Arms Race."
