Michigan High School Students Build Automatic Locker Door Opener For Classmate With Muscular Dystrophy [Video]

Students Build Automatic Locker Door Opener for Classmate With MS
LivingstonDaily

It seems like we are surrounded by school tragedies in the news lately, so this story about Michigan students helping their classmate suffering from Muscular Dystrophy is much needed.

Pinckney student Nick Torrance suffers from Muscular Dystrophy, and recently it has taken his ability to do most everyday tasks, including opening his locker.

Two seniors stepped in, and with the guidance of their robotics instructor Micah Stuhldreher and Wyatt Smrcka created an automatic locker door opener for Nick.

The fact that these students were able to create a robotic locker door opener is pretty astounding, but the real lesson learned here has nothing to do with robotics.  The real lesson is about helping other people.  About showing compassion, and using your resources to help those who need it.

Everyone involved in this project should be immensely proud of themselves for teaching and learning something in school that could never come from a text book.  This is a life lesson that will stay with all of these students, and make them better people down the road.
