Modifying a Bomb-Defusing Robot

"About the size of a backpack, the rubber-treaded “Packbot” is able to scoot across a room or field, open a door and pick up an object with a hand-sized claw.

On loan to the Tech Center, It’s one of two robots the Kent County Sheriff’s Department acquired from the military after they were decommissioned." - Read the Full article about Jared's Project on School News Network
