The Fifth Grade class from Leverett Elementary came to visit the Media Lab yesterday, and we had a blast. They have been learning about robots from Scholastic News, and were really excited to see a few in action. The facial recognition robot was a big hit, and they got to see time lapse photography as well.
The class was also the first to try our new Stop Motion Animation Station, using motion sensing software to create a montage of all of their hands. The software is built on the iHart suite from the Computer Science department. It’s all open source, and we hope to see it spread to schools in the area soon.
