hanukaah3

 

At the Technion center for Robotics and technology, Hanukkah is being celebrating in a wild new way. The students have discovered how to have robots serve sufganiot (chanukah donuts), light the menorah. Dr. Dan Cupferman is teaching 10th graders from Or Bialik High School how to aid robots in performing these tasks.

The students are taken to the institute for an hour and a half a week and program the robots to respond to noise in the form of handclaps. Students were able to get robots to light the menorah according to instruction. The Hanukkah robot is just one way the students learn the art of robotics and the future of programming.
