After last year’s inaugural offering of the Social Robotics major at Grandparents University, we came back for all three sessions in 2012. In each two day session, grandparents and grandkids learned about what it means to be social, how our behavior affects our interactions, what the field of social robotics looks like, and how to program a Lego Mindstorms robot to exhibit social behaviors. You can view more pictures here, here, and here.

 

If you’d like to join us next year, be sure to check out the Wisconsin Alumni Association. They’ll be posting information on GPU 2013 as it becomes available.
