ARC have created a gas-detecting patrol robot for the PA Competition – it really needs a name now.. Gasbot 3000 ?!
the ARC demo robot has three functioning brains, two (Pi) on WiFi and one on Bluetooth but has not yet rumbled out of the door.. Sensor readings are rather erratic and the head-mounted servo obeys no known code. On the plus side Motors coping with the combined weight and Meccano providing a strong exoskeleton. Also the camera works!

Our photo editing competition showcased pupil creativity, with an unexpected twist, in that the finalists opted to choose characters from the world of politics.
Who knew that there was so much humour to be found in the political machinations of 2020.?!
