An intelligent, two-wheeled piece of machinery was added to the Sultan Middle School STEAM program's arsenal.
The Standever Institute donated a Double Robotics Telepresence robot to the Science, Technology, Engineering, Automation and Math program on Friday, March 17. The nonprofit aims to connect people with opportunities in technology.
With assistance from an iPad donated by the city of Sultan, the robot can be controlled remotely, easily moving around and increasing interactions with students.
Standever Institute president and executive director Sean Standefer addressed the school during a Friday morning assembly. The robot was designed to be used at table-level height, has Bluetooth access and speaker systems.
