For more than three decades, Boston Dynamics’ innovations have inspired young minds. But with the commercial availability of Spot, the next generation of engineers, technicians, roboticists, and innovators is now getting hands-on in the classroom. Spot is increasingly a key part of curriculums at universities, colleges, and high schools around the world. We are joined by faculty from Central High School in Louisville, Kentucky where, since arriving in 2021, Spot has been the center of their STEM program.
