‘Spot the Robot Dog’ visits Española elementary school

ESPAÑOLA, N.M. (KRQE) – Representatives from Los Alamos National Laboratory stopped by Tony E. Quintana Elementary School in Española last week and brought along a special guest. The robotic team introduced the students to Spot the Robotic Dog.

Some kids even got to try their hand at controlling Spot around the gym. “Kids are very intuitive with modern technology, and being able to work joy sticks put the controller in their hand and let them control the robot, see what it can do, so it gets their mind working on possible work they may be able to do in the future,” said Project Manager Dan McDonald.

Spot is one of five robot dogs at Los Alamos. He is the work of Boston Dynamics.
