Humanoid robot set to visit school pupils

CHILDREN at Shipham First School are expecting a different kind of visitor next week – a humanoid robot trained to 'understand' emotions.

 Pepper, a four feet tall robot which can talk, laugh, dance and even ‘feel,’ will pay a trip to the school with a team from GWS Robotics.

The robot has worked in hospitals, companies, schools and homes in Japan. But it has only recently become available in the UK. 

Pepper is set to interact with Year Three and Four pupils as part of a course on what robots are and how they are used and programmed. 

David Graves, creative director for GWS Robotics and its associated company, GWS Media, said they were looking forward to the visit.

He said: “It’s a great opportunity to inspire the next generation and help them learn more about the world of robotics.

“We will show the children how the robot moves, what it can be used for and explain how it is controlled.

“There may be future robot programmers among the children and perhaps this will be the first step in their path to discovery.”

Jo Dood, class teacher of Blackrock class at Shipham First School, said they were excited about the visit.

She said: “We will have a class of 23 children, aged between seven and nine, attending the visit. I’m sure they will have plenty of questions to ask on the day.

“We are grateful to the team at GWS Robotics and, of course, Pepper, for taking the time to visit. We believe such interactive learning will help the children to better understand how robots work.”
