On Thursday, 11th January, grade 7 students visited Technopark Celje. They were playing with a humanoid robot called Pepper and producing some code using simple commands with text, images, sound, and animation. Later, they interacted with her. They also used BCI (Brain-Computer Interface) technology, sometimes called a brain-machine interface or smart brain. It is a direct communication pathway between the brain's electrical activity and an external device, most commonly a computer. In the end, they explored the Science and Entertainment Park, conducted experiments, used VR glasses, and played with optical illusion settings. They enjoyed it a lot.
