Students marvel at the 3-foot honey bee robot created by MSOE engineering student Tim DeLeo.

MSOE student designs educational robot

An MSOE engineering student yesterday unveiled the robot he designed to facilitate interactive learning for students in grades 1-5.

Tim DeLeo designed the robot to look like a honey bee, corresponding with the recently-published children's book "A Busy Bee: The Story of Bella the Honey Bee." The unveiling took place at MSOE's Grohmann Museum, 1000 N. Broadway, on Wednesday morning.

The robot stands 3 feet tall and boasts a 10.5-inch LCD display screen with an 11-button capacity touch pad. By using the robot, students can ask questions, learn about the bee anatomy and more.

"A Busy Bee: The Story of Bella the Honey Bee," was published by SHARP Literacy Inc., a Milwaukee-area initiative aimed at increasing literacy in elementary school students. SHARP students contributed to the writing of the book.
