Friday, April 21, 2023 – Robots help teach STEM and Native languages
Ojibwe inventor Danielle Boyer is on a quest to make technology more accessible to interested Native students. She’s given away some 8,000 robots through her program Every Kid Gets A Robot. She’s also developed a low-cost, wearable robot that helps teach Indigenous languages. She’s among groups of creative, science-savvy Native young people working to make connections between robots and education.
