Day 3: Telling Stories and Having Conversations

Today we worked on story-telling and robot-robot communication.

One of the writing prompts for the kids was to write a bedtime story that a NAO robot would tell a smaller robot action figure.  The kids had a robot tell their bedtime story, and we video recorded the results.

After the robots told their bedtime stories, we saw a demonstration of a skit involving two robots talking to each other.  The two robots exchanged a few sarcastic remarks during the conversation.We broke up into groups to write conversations between robots.  In one group, the kids worked together to program a conversation about the Hunger Games, and in another group the topic was on adoption of a new robot.  The next writing prompt will involve having the kids write a conversation between two robots that we can then code.
