Are you smarter than a fifth-grader? Because today's students are borrowing and building robots.
from Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The teen girls who had crafted the mustard-colored dinosaur head hanging on the wall endearingly referred to their creation as "Fred," according to its current owner. Tom Lauwers proudly displays Fred in his corner of the co-working space StartUptown. When he waves his hand before the prototype, its eyes light up. When he pets the robotic art project, it moves its head approvingly. Fred is a testament to the innumerable possibilities that exist for students who get their hands on Mr. Lauwers's Hummingbird Robotics Kit — a set of tools that help students create and program their own interactive robots in the classroom.
