---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a powered, remotely operated door opener for a high school locker for a student with muscular dystrophy. A pair of seniors, Micah Stuhldreher and Wyatt Smrcka, in a robotics class at Pinckney Community High School in Michigan used their school's resources to build a device that allows their classmate with muscular dystrophy to open his locker using a remote control from his wheelchair. Working with their robotics teacher, they fabricated moving parts and mounted electrical controls to produce a reliable mechanism that allowed their classmate to open the locker. The students have received a small grant from the Society of American Military Engineers to improve the device and reproduce it. AUTHOR: Devin Coldewey.
