These days there’s lots of talk about preparing young people for real life occupations after college. But here in New Orleans, one unusual high school is having that conversation with their students now. On this week’s Notes from New Orleans, Sharon Litwin goes to the New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy to talk with one faculty member about what’s going on there.
Jessica Harris talks to Rodney Brooks, co-founder of Rethink, a company that makes robots for the manufacturing industry. In 1990 Dr. Brooks founded iRobot, which makes robots for the consumer and defense industries. Their first consumer product was the Roomba, the robot that vacuums for you.
