Mr. Kinsey, Lackland ISD’s new robotics teacher, hasn’t wasted any time in highlighting the practical applications for his students or the students in Lackland Elementary School’s robotics club. Working with LISD’s Community Relations Office, Mr. Kinsey was able to secure the professionals from JBSA’s 502 CES/CED Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team to demonstrate how their robots are able to traverse harsh terrain, open doors and even pick-up delicate items. Students were able to interact with the robots and gain an appreciation for how specialized each one was engineered. “What an incredible opportunity for our students,” Mr. Kinsey said,  “a big thank you to SSgt Foster and his team for making this a reality.”
