In her first few weeks at Bullitt Lick Middle School, KATE has become quite popular.
But KATE — her name is short for Kentucky's Automated Technology Educator — isn't your typical middle-schooler; she's a robot on loan from Murray State University, and she's helping a class of about 30 seventh- and eighth-grade students learn about robotics.
Bullitt Lick is the first Kentucky school to use the Nao robot, a programmable humanoid robot developed by a French robotics company.
