A 15-minute video version of the children’s book “How to Train Your Robot,” written by CS Prof. Ken Goldberg and his daughter, Blooma, has been released by the CITRIS Banatao Institute. Aimed at children ages six to eleven, it tells the story of a group of 4th graders who decide to build a robot to clean their workshop. Designed to inspire girls and members of other under-represented groups to explore engineering, robotics, and coding for themselves, it’s the perfect introduction for kids who are curious about robots and want to know more about how they work. The video utilizes animatics with story narration, and is subtitled in English, Spanish, Japanese, Hindi, and simplified Chinese. Co-written by Ashley Chase and illustrated by Dave Clegg, the book was published with support from the NSF and the the Lawrence Hall of Science in 2019.
