Bryan Batcher is an AP Computer Science Instructor and Esports Coach at Anderson Districts 1 & 2 Career and Technology Center (ACTC) His current project is for guests to be able to learn about all of the career pathways offered at ACTC via the touchscreen from Pepper robot! In teams, his students take Pepper to other career instructors classrooms and they demonstrate the robot to teachers and students to find out ways that robots are used in their field.
This is his story!
Kelly Schuster-Paredes is a Computer Science and Technology Specialist from Pine Crest School. As part of the School’s strategic plan, the Educational Design team and computer science program had already been working with Pepper in the classroom. As the program expanded, the Educational Design team researched more robots and discovered NAO. Pine Crest purchased two NAO robots to integrate into their computer science program.
