John D. O'Bryant School of Mathematics and Science InvenTeam
Automatic Blackboard Eraser
After surveying teachers in their school, students learned of several problems that teachers experienced with the blackboards including difficulty cleaning them and dust inhalation from chalk. The InvenTeam’s solution was an automatic portable blackboard eraser, referred to as P.A.B.E. The P.A.B.E. is composed of three parts: a top bearing, automatic eraser, and motor base, which were designed to move horizontally across the board. The InvenTeam cited better pressure distribution of the eraser to be a design improvement for continued work.
