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.
