This is a competition sponsored by the Department of Defense–the Army Educational Outreach Program. These four students conducted research on how to sanitize a facemask using UV lighting and a home disinfectant aerosol spray (LYSOL) while creating a robot that was programmed to do this autonomously. This was a true team effort that started back in August 2020 and officially ended this month for Team Black Lightning! Each student will receive a $1,000 U.S. Series EE Savings Bond.

Again, congratulations! We are very proud of you and your sponsors, Warren Wise, Tameka Staley, and Xandra Farmer, for achieving this distinguished recognition.
