Robot Heart Stories Encourages Students

Beginning in October, an English-speaking classroom in Los Angeles and French-speaking one in Montreal teamed to create Robot Heart Stories, a learning project from storyteller Lance Weiler and producer Janine Saunders. The 40 students were encouraged to make a "heart pack" and write stories to fuel a robot named Laika who crash landed in Canada and had to make her way back to her ship in CA.

The robot was "fueled " by the students' creativity as they decided where the journey would go. A picture was taken at each of 56 cities for a total of 2010 miles and 397 photographs. Future plans include NASA sending the project to the ISS and to chronicle the experience in a coffee table book.
