Student in the Bellver science club have been busy building a robot arm and discovering how electric motors are connected, through gears, to control movement.
After several hours of construction the time came to connect the robot arm to a computer and test its functions.
A nervous group of students were hoping that each connection had been made correctly and nothing would go wrong.
Their fears were allayed when the robot arm obeyed their commands through the computer interface.
The students now plan to write programs so that the arm can be manoeuvred automatically.
