ACROSS Workshop at the Science Festival

LARICS team of 7 people and 5 NAO robots held a workshop at the Technical Museum as a part of Science Festival 2013. Workshop named „Humanoid robots – partners in work and play“ was organized by Professor Zdenko Kovacic, Damjan Miklic and Frano Petric, with help from Anja Babic, Tamara Petrovic, Kruno Hrvatinic and Mihael Mercvajler. While Anja, Tamara and Kruno demonstrated some of the built-in functionalities of NAO robots, Damjan and Frano assisted two of our NAOs to display their skills in playing the tic-tac-toe game, which attracted a lot of attention from mainly young visitors. Mihael was also very busy successfully demonstrating his interesting work on teaching a NAO robot to read. We had a lot of fun and hope that our visitors enjoyed the workshop too. Album with photos from the workshop can be seen on the Facebook page of Science Festival. We will be back next year, see you again at the Science Festival 2014.
