Prof. Joanne realized that the NAO Robot is the best tool for her when she saw the robot dancing "Gangnam Style" at the 2014 ASEE (American Society for Engineering Education) conference  and she watched the crowds gather around. 

Prof. Joanne uses the NAO robot in a grad course on Human-Robot interaction. Her students study the technical and social aspects of interactions between humans and robots as well as societal and ethical issues.  Professor Dugan developed the courses   half-lecture and half-lab. For her, a series of lab assignments allows the students to develop expertise in programming the robot to perform some task (usually a game) that requires interactions with a human.

The purpose of their visit was to demonstrate their robotics and coding progression for K-8 Maker-spaces.  “Next to us, the RobotLAB team had a NAO robot performing the "Thriller" dance. We knew then that NAO would be the perfect STEAM ambassador to capture the interest of our youngest students and the "reach" platform for our most advanced students” Miller said.

RobotLAB had a successful training with Worthing High School from Houston, TX.

At RobotLAB, one of the things that we excite us the most is to visit young students and give them the opportunity to interact with our fantastic robots. This is when we feel truly fulfilled and satisfied with our efforts.

Recently, the Worthing High School in Houston, TX, was invited to San Francisco in order to enjoy a ground-breaking experience for its students. As we often do, we provide educational experiences with robots like NAO and Pepper. Our goal here is to discover how educational robots influence learning and students’ interest.

The robotics survey 2018 conducted on this occasion gave us valuable insights about this. As always, we are both pleased and surprised by the results
