On Friday September 29th, the robotics leadership team got to go the fire station. They met the bomb squad there. The bomb squad is a subsection of the fire department. As their name suggests, they diffuse bombs. You may be wondering exactly how the bomb squad gets the bomb away from cities or towns without getting hurt. The bomb squad uses two robots. One is significantly larger than the other. Essentially, the robot can pick objects up and place them elsewhere, move around, and shoot extremely pressurized pellets of water at objects. The robot’s main goal is to pick up said explosive device and take it to an area where there are not many people (such as an empty field). Then, the robot shoots a pellet (not water) at it and the explosive goes off. This way, no civilians or firefighters are harmed. If any damage does occur, it is to the robot. The robot, unlike humans, can be bought again or refurbished and made good as new. Parts of the leadership team even go to drive the robot. Overall it was an educational, yet very entertaining trip.
