Pepper Academy

Are you a high school student interested in computer science, robotics, and coding?

Or do you know an enthusiastic junior engineer who would like to dive deeper into these topics? Robotics is an interdisciplinary field that involves the interplay of computer science and engineering. In this virtual workshop, our instructors will introduce concepts of computer science, including variables, conditions, and functions. Students will learn these concepts using the visual programming tool, Tethys, which will enable them to program the virtual semi-humanoid robot, Pepper, created by SoftBank Robotics. The increasing use of intelligent machines to improve our everyday lives will also be discussed in this workshop.
