Learn More About the Robots

We have two robots that live at the Aquarium and are assigned a team member from the Aquarium who lead the tours. Children at the Muma Children's Hospital at TGH can operate the Robot with a member of our Child Life team where they are able to move the Robot forward, backwards, side to side, and move the robots head up and down. The robots have a two-way camera and microphone so the children can communicate to the Robot’s handler at the Aquarium.

We are currently in final testing stage and January 2024 is official go live! Some of our future plans include utilizing the Robots for educational purposes with our Hillsborough hospital school program. Additionally, we are in discussions with the Aquarium in South Carolina to provide tours to their aquarium for our children and vise versa.
