Based on our successful Titanium Knights Robotics Program, the Bergen County Police Department donated a second decommisioned Bomb Disposal robot to our program. Students were able to drive the MK2 robot and deploy the arm to pick up things. All of our robots were highlighted at the annual Engineering Fair. A previously donated robot "REMI," was updated by students and demonstrated to the squad. And we also saw a demonstration of the police department's newest machine. Each year, students investigate new updates and uses for these robots.
