CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The Queen City Robotics Alliance (QCRA) nurtures the future workforce by providing practical, hands-on STEM experiences for local youth. The CLT FIRST® Zone is home to 7 Charlotte area teams of middle school and high school ages. Here students engineer new ways to accomplish tasks.

QCRA has recently added an Invictus Aura Storm, a medical-grade air purifier submitted for FDA approval. The Storm is a multi-stage UV-C air sanitizer that delivers hospital-grade sterilization for rooms up to 21,000 cubic feet (~52ft x 52ft x 8 ft.). The Storm inactivates and eliminates bacteria and viruses (including the SARS-CoV-2 virus). Third-party certified testing shows a 4-log sterilization (99.99% in under 60 minutes). Note: Hospital-grade sterilization is defined as 4-log sterilization (99.99%) in 120 minutes. Aura Storm achieved this standard in less than 60 minutes.

According to Kaiwen Cheng, President of QCRA, “Covid has provided QCRA with unique challenges since Robotics Teams are required to work very close together to plan, design, build, test, and compete with their robots. We require them to be masked when in the Zone, but we are excited to have an additional level of protection since most of our participants are not yet vaccinated due to their ages.”

According to Invictus President, Erik McMillan, “We compliment QCRA for taking the steps necessary to protect its students. The SARS-CoV-2 virus keeps transforming, and we need to provide highly effective solutions to meet the pandemic head-on. These students work in close quarters as they design and build their robots. It is important to have impactful air sanitizing equipment as close to them as possible.”
