NAO: The Humanoid Robot

Nao is a small humanoid robot designed to interact with people. It’s packed with sensors (and character) and it can walk, dance, speak, and recognize faces and objects. It is used in research, education, and healthcare all over the world.

This workshop will immerse your students into the world of problem solving and an introduction into robotics and coding.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Using advanced hardware technology to provide students foundational skills that develop critical thinking, synthesizing information, team collaboration, and real-world problem solving to life. 
  • Students will learn coding, beginning with basic awareness of the programing tool and then advance with Python coding.
  • Our Experience: We use spheros in our WCTD after-school coding classes for students ages 7-12
  • We also use spheros in our summer programs, teaching advanced math and getting students engaged in math competencies

Age Groups:

  • Elementary/Middle School (ages 7-12): Students will bee utilizing drag & drop coding
  • High School (ages 13-18):  Students will be utilizing scripting languages, such as C++, MATLAB, JAVA, LabVIEW and Python
