Humanoid Robot Conducts Symphony

The development in modern robotics is impressive. NewScientist reports that a 58 centimetre tall humanoid robot led a unique rendition of Beethoven’s 5th symphony. You can see the full article here.

Seeing it in action is pretty neat, and there are several videos at this link that show the robot in action, including martial arts and Japanese traditional dance.

I know that there are several projects related to the use of robotics in the K-12 classroom, including the Robotics Education Project from NASA. I am wondering if anyone locally (Saskatchewan) has been using or knows of the use of Robotics in the classroom. I am a bit lacking on this topic.
