    EAST PALO ALTO — In a small garage on Beech Street, saw-on-metal screeches bounce off the walls and spill out, interrupted only by the sounds of mechanical movements and the faint murmur of kids happily barking orders at each other while working on their collective pet project. For the past three years, a dozen-or-so East Palo Alto middle- and high-schoolers have been experimenting with basic motors, electrical engineering, computer vision, hydraulics, machining, pneumatics and software development with one goal in mind: Build a robot. Palo Alto High School Senior Cristina Becerra, who is one of the longest-running members of East Palo Alto Robotics, said the team “just kind of happened.” She prefers to call the team the “Churrobots” (they hang tiny churros off of their robot honoring their largely Hispanic roots). Without many options around her in East Palo Alto, she and a few dedicated people cobbled together enough parts and equipment from Home Depot and other local teams to forge it out of nothing. In Silicon Valley, you’d be hard-pressed to find a school that doesn’t have a robotics program (all...

    By FRANK JORDANS, Associated Press BERLIN (AP) — Companies that sell refrigerators, washers, hairdryers or TVs in the European Union will need to ensure those appliances can be repaired for up to 10 years, to help reduce the vast mountain of electrical waste that piles up each year on the continent. The "right to repair," as it is sometimes called, comes into force across the 27-nation bloc Monday. It is part of a broader effort to cut the environmental footprint of manufactured goods by making them more durable and energy efficient. “This is a really big step in the right direction” said Daniel Affelt of the environmental group BUND-Berlin, which runs several "repair cafes" where people can bring in their broken appliances and get help fixing them up again. Modern appliances are often glued or riveted together, he said. “If you need specialist tools or have to break open the device, then you can’t repair it.” Lack of spare parts is another problem, campaigners say. Sometimes a single broken tooth on a tiny plastic sprocket can throw a proverbial wrench...
