From acting to bombing with robots – faces of science

In the comic book and teaching package Scarab and the mysterious disease Like real scientists, four children research how some of them might get sick after seeing a mummy up close. During their research, they discovered that the science is incredibly diverse. For example, they interview researchers in archaeology, psychology, virology, and data science, and that involves a lot! Actually too much for a good explanation in comic form. That’s why I decided to turn some complicated topics into vlogs. In each vlog, I pick one comic book topic and visit experts who know all about it. During the vlogs, I bombard the experts with all sorts of questions, actually a bit like Het Klokhuis! Today the topic of ‘Robots’ is basic and I’m welcome to robotics maker Edwin Dertien.
As you already know, I have a large collection of “tools” at home. At least that’s what I like to call them. In fact, it mainly consists of strange gadgets and funny toys. Among all these tools, there is also a hidden bot called Cozmo. He may be small, but he has a big mind and an even bigger personality! He can be happy, sad, impatient or excited; Actually just like a human!

But robots go beyond just cute toys. For example, robots are used in healthcare, factories, military purposes and even in space! Today I’m welcome to Edwin Derten’s robot builder workshop.
