Dolores High School students built a hazardous device extraction robot as part of the STEM outreach program at Pueblo Community College Southwest. Student teams collaborated to build a robot capable of lifting a £1 device. Students engineered the device with the goal of being able to extract a hazardous device from a crime scene. The project took the students just six class periods to complete. Learn more about similar projects and courses at pueblocc.edu/southwest. That's it for this week's Local News Roundup.
