the placement ends

Today was the final day of my placement working with Zeno. I’m really looking forward to seeing how he’ll progress in the coming months; and I will most definitely visit him again when I return to Sheffield. My intern has ended with beautiful skies, being treated to lunch and finding out that I’ll be graduating this year with a first class degree. A lovely day to say the least!

working with robots

I’ve had a really good few days at work this week; there’s been lots of progress with setting up our humanoid robot, ‘Zeno’ , and he performed very well for the department visitors yesterday. So, I figured that today I’d buy him some stacking cups! Hopefully others from the department will donate some toys as well. I also had the chance to pet Paro, the robot seal – who may or may not know his name yet (we couldn’t really tell).

I only have one more week left to work with Zeno before I head home for the Summer; this intern has flown by really quickly but I’ve had lots of fun.
