Robotics is an exciting, energetic and fast growing industry and indeed one that perfectly illustrates the symbiotic relationship between Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). The NAO humanoid robot is an ideal platform for teaching of STEM subjects and is also a great way of developing an interest in the area of computer science, it brings it to life.
