STEM Robots Sam E. and Wally Nole

STEM programs at FSU Panama City also engage FSU students when they work with and display the FSU Panama City mascots affectionately known as Sam E. and Wally Nole.  These two humanoid NAO robots (autonomous, programmable humanoid robots), sponsored by AT&T, are programmed by the students to respond to voice recognition and to perform various animated movements to live music.  Students display the robots at local schools and recruitment events.
