Boy, I wish I was back at school!
SACRAMENTO, CA — A team of eight middle school students here has designed an electrolyzed water vending machine that they’re hoping will take top place at the FIRST Lego League Robotics Sacramento District Championship on Feb. 11. The team advanced to the regional competition after winning the local qualifying tournament in Chico, CA.
The four boys and four girls (the “Folsom BrainStormers“) are from four different schools. Their novel vending application produces electrolyzed water, which is proven to reduce food contamination and can also be used as a nontoxic cleaning agent. The team’s coach, Charles Smothers, has been coaching robotics teams for last four years.
Here’s the report on how they managed it.
