  • Bring groups together after they have created and tested the 'E-Stop' project.
  • Discuss the project and its applications with students
    • Ask them questions about how their Bumper Switch relates to industrial emergency stops. What is similar or different?
    • Additionally, ask about how they might use the Bumper Switch during future projects with the Workcell.
