Nao Robot in educational use

As in any field we can think of, robots are slowly but surely gaining their place in our classrooms too. Use of robots in classrooms has benefits for many reasons. First of all, it is a very effective way of introducing students to mathematics, engineering and science, in addition to Robotics, which can be considered as the next most popular field in education in the years to come. One good example of these robots, is the NAO Robot from Aldebaran Robotics, a company based in France. NAO is a 57 cm tall robot with 25 degrees of freedom, running on Choregraphe software, and is one of the most frequently used robots in its field today. NAO has recently been named as the best robot in education by Carnegie Mellon University, Robot Hall of Fame(c) competition. The ability of NAO to be programmed into doing an unlimited number of different tasks also makes this robot a very flexible helper for all kinds of subjects in the classroom at all levels. Introduced in 2009, NAO robot is also the robot platform used in competitions like in Robocup. To get more information about NAO, visit Aldebaran Robotics website at:
