Let there be rock

In the beginning
Back in nineteen fifty five
Man didn’t know ’bout a rock ‘n’ roll show
And all that jive
The white man had the schmaltz
The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tchaikovsky had the news
He said let there be sound
There was sound
Let there be light
There was light
Let there be drums
There was drums
Let there be guitar
There was guitar
Let there be rock

And it came to pass
That rock ‘n’ roll was born
All across the land every rockin’ band
Was blowin’ up a storm
And the guitar man got famous
The business man got rich
And in every bar there was a superstar
With a seven year itch
There was fifteen million fingers
Learnin’ how to play
And you could hear the fingers pickin’
And this is what they had to say
Let there be light
Let there be rock

One night in the club called the shakin’ hand
There was a 42 decibel rockin’ band
And the music was good and the music was loud
And the singer turned and he said to the crowd
Let there be rock

My teacher is a robot!!

Students at the Kudan Elementary School in downtown Tokyo were told a special teacher would help them with their science class.

But few expected the teacher would need three grown men to help her up to the podium or need special programming to talk.

Saya, the substitute teacher, is a robot.

Built by Professor Hiroshi Kobayashi of Tokyo University of Science, he says shes not meant to take away the jobs of teachers.

[Hiroshi Kobayashi, Tokyo University Professor]:
“We are not looking at making something that will take over teachers, but rather our main reason for building this robot is to use new technology to teach children about technology.”

But Saya may be able to help in schools where there is a shortage of teachers.

[Hiroshi Kobayashi, Tokyo University Professor]:
“In the countryside and in some small schools, there are children who do not have the opportunity to come into contact with new technology, and also there are few teachers out there that can teach these lessons, so we also hope to be able to develop this robot so it can be remotely controlled to teach these classes.”

Saya, was a hit with the children.

[Nanako Iijima, Student]:
“Its so much more fun than regular classes.”

Most students were mesmerized by the robot.

[Masaru Tabata, Student]:
“It was great seeing the robot moving and speaking.”

But the class teacher was not convinced Saya was ready to go full time.

[Akito Fukuda, Science Teacher]:
“I think on the one hand I am impressed that they’ve got robots to go this far, but on the other hand they still have a long way to research before they create a truly robotic teacher.”

The curiosity of the children did not stop after the class.
