[THEME SONG BEGINS]


>>RACHEL: Welcome back, it’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. 


Start brushing on the top of your mouth. Pick a side, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth. 


>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


>>RACHEL: It’s Robot Week! And I hope you’re hardwired to take on these hard riddles. Here’s your first one:


A soaring robotic machine

Called “The eye in the sky”

There’s no human on board

You need a controller to make it fly


What kind of robot is this? Shout it out.


>>GROUP: A Drone!


>>RACHEL:  A Drone


Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL:  and brush your molars in the back of your mouth too.


Drones are also called unmanned aerial vehicles. 


>>KID: HUH? 


>>RACHEL: They’re robotic machines that fly without a human pilot onboard. 


Drones can do all kinds of jobs  for humans. For example, drones can fly high up into the clouds to study the weather.


[THUNDER]


>>RACHEL: And drones save farmers time by flying over large fields to help check on their crops and animals. 


[MOOOOO]


>>RACHEL: Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -pick a side and keep brushing! 


Here’s your next riddle: 


I’m a robot vehicle

Driving down the road

Without a human driver

I’m in self-driving mode


What kind of robot is this? Shout it out.


>>GROUP: Self-driving cars!


A Self-driving car is a robotic car that can drive by itself. It doesn’t need a human behind the steering wheel.

>>RACHEL: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: -but keep making circles around each tooth with your brush. 


Self-driving cars use a type of technology called ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE - AI for short. Artificial intelligence helps robots learn to be just as smart, or intelligent, as humans. 


AI technology gives machines the ability to think and learn.
