Future Laparoscopic Surgeon? Local Students 'Drive' Undersea Robot

Published June 2007

Several dexterous local junior high students won the unique opportunity to remotely “drive” a surgical robot—known as the RAVEN—as part of community outreach events held in conjunction with the 12th NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operation in May.

                                                                                    

Samantha Martin (above) of Indian Creek High School in Indiana was selected to drive the robot for her skill in manipulating laparoscopic tools during a robotics competition hosted at the University of Cincinnati’s Center for Surgical Innovation.

 

Students from Shroder Junior High School, the Indiana School for the Deaf, Taft Elementary and Clark Montessori also participated in the competition.
