Adopt-A-Robot

Scribbler: $100

Used in Introduction to Computer Science, Scribbler 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.

Benefits of sponsorship include:

  • The opportunity to name your robot
  • You will receive a video of the student’s final project

Chiara (kee-AR-ah): $3000

Used in CCI’s advanced robotics course, Chiara 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. Your gift of $3,000 will allow us to purchase a Chiara for our advanced social robotics course.
