NAO Robots

NAO is friendly, cute and measures 58cm tall. But don't be fooled by their adorable appearance, NAOs are powerful little guys with huge potential to contribute to the development and progress of science and technology education. The NAO also has revolutionary applications for healthcare, rehabilitation and special education.

NAOs are autonomous and fully programmable, and may be used to help teach people to code and to understand how robots can use visions and audio sensors. The NAO mission is to introduce more young people to technology, guide the gifted towards scientific careers, and provide an educational tool that adapts to all students and materials. NAO Robots will be roving the campus from 10am – 4pm, see if you can find one, say hi, hold their hand and snap a selfie!

At various times during the day on the main stage you can find the NAOs showing off, from storytelling, to dance performances, Tai Chi and Yoga – don't miss out on seeing what NAO can do!

QUT has recently acquired a brand new NAO. Can you help QUT name it?
