I found out about Tweenbots through an education blog I read, What It’s Like on the Inside. (I found What It’s Like while I was googling “teacher mental health days,” but that’s a different story.) It’s such an intriguing idea. Check out the site and watch the video. Would you stop to help a slow, simple robot make its way through a busy public park? As much as I love taking surveys and participating in research, I’m not sure I would have helped. There’s definitely fodder here for some commentary about the kindness of people, especially New Yorkers, but it’s too late for that right now, I think.
