SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- In her first few weeks at Bullitt Lick Middle School, KATE has become quite popular.
Students at the school enjoy hanging out with her because she is easy to talk to and has a firm grasp on pop culture. She knows all the dance moves to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and can recite the "Star Wars" saga with ease.
But KATE -- her name is short for Kentucky's Automated Technology Educator -- isn't your typical middle-schooler; she's a robot on loan from Murray State University, and she's helping a class of about 30 seventh- and eighth-grade students learn about robotics.
Bullitt Lick is the first Kentucky school to use the Nao robot, a programmable humanoid robot developed by a French robotics company.
