Pipeline to the Future

On a recent day during an after-school program at Troy's Doyle Middle School, two seventh-grade girls cheerfully greeted a visitor, eagerly explaining their newest robotic creation, "the plug," a nano device used to repair blood vessels.

Of course, the colorful model, made from child-favorite LEGO® plastic bricks along with the toymaker's sophisticated computer technology, wasn't small enough to fit inside an actual vein or artery to plug up tissue damage. But the imagination and the students' ability to grasp the concept behind the nanorobot model, and their determination to build it, constitute the epitome of what Bill Clark has worked to accomplish in his eight years as a technology education teacher at the middle school.
