Today the IEEE ENCS Humanoid Robot Project team brought KEN to a local charter school and demonstrated to about 360 K-7th grade students. Students at different grades have about 20 or 40 minutes to interact with KEN and learn engineering. The children's reactions and questions are absolutely delightful to observe. I came back to Raleigh around 1am from the HFES conference in Los Angeles last night in order to catch this opportunity and I am so glad that it worked out.
