Westport Guest Speaker
On Tuesday, January 23rd, Westport Elementary/Middle School hosted guest speaker Job Bedford from Ready Robotics. Job received his Master’s degree in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon and spoke to the students about his previous positions at NASA as well as Disney as an Imagineer before his current position working for Ready Robotics in Baltimore City. Job showed the students videos and pictures of robots he has made throughout his career and encouraged the students to ask questions. He provided students with real world knowledge about working in the Robotics field and what it took to get where he was.
The students were absorbed in Job’s story and asked a multitude of questions about the different robots he built, how he built them and what they did. Students learned more about the types of robots and different tasks that you could build a robot to accomplish.
