Saul Talavera and Julliana Tran, sixth-graders at Holy Rosary Regional School/Juan Diego Academy in Tacoma, got a sneak peek in October at one of the 50 loaner robots the school is sharing with five other Catholic schools throughout January. The robot, called the Finch, helps students learn about basic computer programming.
The robots will be shared with St. Bernadette in Burien; St. Edward, St. George and St. Paul in Seattle; and Visitation in Tacoma. “The really cool aspect of this is that these schools — which all share some of the same demographics: high poverty, high diversity, low socioeconomics — are getting a remarkable opportunity,” said Holy Rosary principal Dr. Timothy Uhl.
