VIDEO: Robot Teachers Take Over Bay Environmental Center

The Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), on the Rhode River in Edgewater, has a secret weapon when it comes to educating the public about our ecosystem. “Pepper” the robot can teach you all about the Bay, take a selfie, and even dance with you. Incredibly, local high schoolers are helping program Pepper, allowing the robot teacher to carry on conversations with the public. Cheryl Costello reports, you can get up close with Pepper at a meet & greet this month.
