What is left of a science project sits on the side of the road across the street from Sequoia high school in Merced Wednesday morning. (1-23-13). It was blown up by the Merced Police department bomb squad robot after a school employee at Sequoia High called it in as a suspicious looking device.  It turned out to be a "hydrogen generator" -  a 2 liter, plastic bottle wrapped with black duct tape with wires coming out of it, said said Sgt. Bob Chapman with the Merced Police Department.
