Hazardous Devices Unit Collaborates with High School Manufacturing Technology Class

The Cedar Rapids Hazardous Devices Unit collaborated with the Prairie High School Manufacturing Technology class to create a display piece for Linn County.  Students in the Manufacturing Tech class were given a retired bomb suit and charged with the task of creating a stand.  Once completed, the suit will be displayed as a museum piece at the Cedar Rapids Police Department.

While designing and creating the stand, the Hazardous Devices Unit brought out their trailer of equipment and did a presentation for the class.  Students were able to try on the bomb suit and learn about the different roles of this unit.
