Curious about robotics? Science on the Screen, geared for middle and high school students, creatively pairs cutting-edge science presented by leading science and technology experts with classic science fiction films. The series reveals the science of everyday living, explores where science and art connect, and inspires students to explore the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). Ken Goldberg – artist, writer, inventor and UC Berkeley Professor of Robotics, Automation and New Media – explains the science and robotics behind the beloved Pixar film WALL·E (G).
