Adopt a Robot!


The Scribbler, used in Introduction to Computer Science, is a fully programmable robot with multiple sensor systems that let it interact with people and objects.

We need 120 Scribblers for our Student Robotics Laboratory.

    The Chiara (kee-AR-ah), used in CCI’s advanced robotics course, is a six-legged robot with serious on-board computing power. CCI has four of the first 18 prototypes, acquired through partnership with Carnegie Mellon University and David Touretzky, and funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

CCI’s robotics students can use your support:

  • For $100, we can equip a student with a Scribbler robot for the semester.
  • $3,000 buys a Chiara for our advanced social robotics course.
  • You can name the robot and receive a video of the student’s final project.
