THE FUTURE IS NAO
We Bring NAO to Life in STEM and Education with
Educator's Kit for NAO
The NAO Robot comes with everything you need to start using NAO in your classroom or research facility today!
Like a new learning tool, he helps students to learn about programming as well as assisting the teachers in holding their students' attention while teaching.
Creating a dance or piloting NAO to make him catch objects while analyzing his environment makes learning code all the more stimulating, attractive and concrete
Learning to count, tell a story or even to write while having fun becomes all the more fascinating and enthralling with NAO.
Engage and Inspire STEM Learning with NAO
Robots in general, and NAO in particular, will help you introduce the complexity of certain scientific subjects in a fun way (mechanics, physics, programming etc.). They will also enable you to illustrate certain abstract concepts in a concrete manner.
NAO naturally arouses the students' interest and motivates them to get actively involved in learning through projects and teamwork.
NAO comes with its own software suite, called Choregraphe, which offers an intuitive 'drag and drop' interface for programming the robot, along with its own curriculum and textbooks. Advanced students can also program using Python and C++.
This turnkey solution gives students a great deal of excitement about STEM!

Make Advanced Technology Accessible to Your Students
NAO is multi-lingual; advanced students can use C++, C#, and Python to program NAO.
For years we have been working with the industry's leading expert providers of NAO based Educational and STEM Curricula.
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education continues to grow in importance in the high-tech, fast paced world of today...and in the future.
It can be difficult to find educational tools that make it easy for teachers to address the standards in all four STEM areas while holding a student's interest. The NAO Humanoid Robot along with our STEMBIOTICS curriculum provide schools and teachers a great way to reach students of all ages with an in-depth resource for learning STEM concepts and skills.
Not only does NAO interest and motivate students, but it provides and excellent way to teach STEM concepts while incorporating language arts - making STEM become STEAM.
We offer a variety of NAO robot focused curriculum solutions for late elementary, middle, and high school.
The Best in NAO STEM and Educational Curricula
Bring STEM to life with a NAO robot; NAO provides a hands-on learning platform to teach core subjects: reading, writing, math, pre-algebra, geometry, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, and programming...plus robotics!
Curriculum Options to Meet Your Needs!
Multiple Curriculum Options for Your School
NAO STEM Curriculum can be purchased as individual units:
-An individual unit lasting a few weeks
-A course lasting a semester
-A full-year course
-A Three-year program
Curriculum are provided via a site license for your entire school.
Learning units include science and technology content; guided, hands-on lab activities; and open-ended challenges.
Curriculum is designed for a teacher-directed classroom and can be customized by the teacher. Professional development can also be provided at your school.
We can also work with you to provide complete courses and/or shorter individual units lasting 3-6 weeks in length.
NAO course offerings are constantly changing as we develop new courses to meet specific needs.

What is NAO?
NAO Brings 7 Senses for Natural Interaction
The fruit of a unique combination of mechanical engineering and software, NAO is a character made up of a multitude of sensors, motors and software piloted by a made-to-measure operating system: NAOqi OS.
Moving : 25 degrees of freedom and a humanoid shape that enable him to move and adapt to the world around him. His inertial unit enables him to maintain his balance and to know whether he is standing up or lying down.
Feeling : The numerous sensors in his head, hands and feet, as well as his sonars, enable him to perceive his environment and get his bearings.
Hearing and speaking : With his 4 directional microphones and loudspeakers, NAO interacts with humans in a completely natural manner, by listening and speaking.
Seeing : NAO is equipped with two cameras that film his environment in high resolution, helping him to recognize shapes and objects.
Connecting : To access the Internet autonomously, NAO is able to use a range of different connection modes (WiFi, Ethernet).
Thinking : We can now really talk about "Artificial Intelligence" with NAO and human like interactions.
NAO is designed to be personalized: adding content, using a variety of capacities, enriching his personality and even developing new skills and know-how. NAO is your robot and the Choregraphe software will help you to personalize him.
What is Choregraphe?
Choregraphe Software Powers NAO
Choregraphe is a multi-platform desktop application, allowing you to:
Create animations, behaviors and dialogs,
Test them on a simulated robot, or directly on a real one,
Monitor and control your robot,
Enrich Choregraphe behaviors with your own Python code.
Choregraphe allows you to create applications containing Dialogs, services and powerful behaviors, such as interaction with people, dance, e-mails sending, without writing a single line of code.
