On Jan. 26, the Roxboro Community School (RCS) Varsity Science Club Robotics team finished their first working robot known as the Clawbot. The bot construction was led by Sydney Fryman, Taylor Anderson, Reagan Anderson, and Alex Adkins.
Fryman joined Science Club hoping to start building prosthetics with the medical team, however, Mike Czysz, club advisor, suggested that she work with the Robotics kit instead. After beginning the project, she was able to order a bigger and better kit thanks to the donations of Mary Alice Wildman, Czysz’s mother-in-law.
“Our next step is the advanced clawbot, which is two times as big and as useful. I also am working to make it a remote wireless,” said Fryman. She continued that their work was “far from over.”
