Fifty students who are a part of the Sulphur Springs Elementary Robotics Club, comprised of 4th and 5th grade students, Friday, April 23, visited CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs, where they had the opportunity to get an up-close look at the facility’s newest technology.

The students “met” the Mako Robot, named … “Kneemo” Fourth grader Kylie Harrison and fifth grader Matthew Evans selected the winning name for the Mako Robot: in the robot naming challenge issued to elementary students.

The SSES Robotics Club met Dr. Chris Meltsakos, orthopedic surgeon, and Stryker representatives showed them how the Mako Robot works with a saw bones demonstration. As an added treat, students were allowed to help calibrate the robot for the demonstration. 

After the meet and greet, photos were taken and the students enjoyed pizza and cookies. The club is under the direction of Amanda Higginbotham and Jairo Ramirez.
