Students at Boyd-Buchanan develop "cyborg" cockroaches

As part of a lesson on the nervous system, advanced placement biology students at Boyd-Buchanan High School are using electrical impulses to control cockroaches through their antennae. Students use a transistor and remote control from a toy to send signals through the cockroach's nerve system. Scientists who first developed this technology are considering using it for search and rescue operations after a disaster.
