>>RACHEL:  and brush the molars in the way back. Let’s learn a little more about robots.


Robots might seem like something from the future but real robots are being used today all the time! 


They come in different shapes, sizes, and designs. Some robots look or act just like people. These kinds of human-like robots are called androids or humanoids.


>>ROBOT: HOW CAN I ASSIST YOU?


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


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL: and brush your front teeth too. 


Not all robots look like humans. Some are only a robot arm and hand. 


Like factory robots -- also called industrial robots. They put stuff together. Like making food or building cars..


[BUILDING SOUNDS]


>>RACHEL: Factory robots are helpful to humans because they can do the same job over and over without getting bored.


Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…


[SWITCH BELL]


>>RACHEL:  and give your tongue a brush too. Robots can also explore places that are too dangerous or difficult for humans to visit. Like deep in the ocean or outer space. 


[SCI-FI WAVES]


>>RACHEL: Rovers are robot cars sent into space to help us learn about distant planets like Mars.
