Escolab: school kids learn about the WYSIWYD project!!


Hundreds of students from different schools in Barcelona join the ESCOLAB event every year and in this context they visit SPECS at UPF laboratory in the hope to learn something new. And in fact they do! 

Today they have learned a bit about Human Robot interaction with special demos showing objects recognition and speech: the humanoid robot iCub can learn to recognize some objects and then can it tell what these objects are .......not easy at all if you are a robot!

It is great to see how these young students (age 14-16) get first surprised then curiose and excited about robots, they love science and technology !
