Apollo likes girls... - girls like robots!

  • 01 March 2014

During this year´s Girls Day on March 27, fifteen girls visited the humanoid robot "Apollo" in the Autonomous Motion Department. Furthermore they spent a while in the Empirical Inference Department learning about Computational Imaging. The girls also had a lot of fun programming the two little Nao robots. Furthermore they even managed the challenge to construct a simple lens system. Thanks to our colleagues Jeannette, Felix, Michael, Julia, Andrea and Claudia who allowed Girls Day to be a special day at the institute. Hopefully it will motivate some of the girls to orientate themselves towards nature sciences and technology.
