To help celebrate National Robotics Week, one little robot-that-can is making its home in U.S. classrooms, helping train children with special needs and advancing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curricula.

“Do you like chocolate?” NAO asked instructor Steve Stacey. When Stacey answered “No,” NAO responded with “Do you even have taste buds?”–a response written by sophomore Gage Brown.
