Universal Education is one of the Millennium Development goals established by the UN. When we received our grant from NASA to build a robot to compete in the FIRST competition, we were asked to think about how robot technology can help us reach one of these goals. Having access to a robot with potentially limitless amounts of information which would be able to tutor people of any age with things like math which require precise formulas and answers. These could be implemented in communities which are in need of a replacement math teacher, or an after school helper.
