The exNihilo Robotics team is collaborating with another FLL team from Roxbury today at the Mt. Olive Library. We will be presenting our research as well as performing a skit to share what we have learned about food safety. In addition, we will be doing a demonstration of using the robot to navigate the missions of this year’s FLL challenge.
expanding the board!
We added a 2 x 4 to the other side of our board so our rats will stay where they are supposed to. We learned the hard way when we realized we had programmed the robot while the rat was in the wrong place!
During Wednesday’s conference call, we decided to focus our research on the contamination of lemons in restaurants. We discussed different ideas including cameras, scanners, and UV lights.

Did you know that…
lemon juice, both from freshly squeezed lemons and packaged lemon juice sold for cooking, contains citric acid and is sometimes used to dissolve brown heroin for injection?
There is research showing that lemon juice can carry fungal infections, which can infect the heart (endocarditis) and eyes (candidal endopthalmitis). The candidal fungi lives on the skins of the lemons when they are growing on the tree, when the lemons are processed the fungus is transferred to the juice.
Among needle exchange workers attending our safer injecting courses during 2000/1, there was a rapid increase in awful stories of eyesight loss due to candidal endopthalmitis amongst their clients.
This was almost caused by the difficulties drug users were experiencing in buying citric acid, and the resulting increase in the use of lemon juice and vinegar as acidifiers, and was a significant part of the reason we were so motivated to source and supply sachets.
Candidal fungal contamination of vinigar is also possible.

Myth #4: I don’t need to wash fruits or vegetables if I’m going to peel them.
Fact: Because it’s easy to transfer bacteria from the peel or rind you’re cutting to the inside of your fruits and veggies, it’s important to wash all produce, even if you plan to peel it.
More myths coming soon!
