Today we have some computerized I Spies about the places you might find a robot!

Where to Listen



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

It’s Robot week, and today we’ve got some I SPIES for you. I’ll describe a place where you might find a robot and you have to guess what place I’m talking about. But first:

Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and brush the molars in the way back too. 

>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!


>>RACHEL: Here’s your first I Spy:

I’m walking in a room that’s FULL of bookshelves. In one corner there’s a big metal box on the ground. It looks sort of  like a mailbox…


>>RACHEL: But it says “RETURNS.” on it...

What place do I Spy? Where am I?

>>GROUP: A library!

>>RACHEL: A library!

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


>>RACHEL:  and make little circles with your brush around each tooth. 

Roboticists have invented a robotic librarian that scans shelves to see if the books are missing or in the wrong place. Then the robot gives that info to human librarians so they can find and replace the books. 

This robot is helpful because it saves humans time searching for missing books.

Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: and give your tongue a brush too.

Here’s your next I Spy:

I’m sitting in a room that looks like a fancy bedroom. I see  TWO large beds, a TV, a small desk, and a comfy reading chair. I also see a mini refrigerator on the floor. All of a sudden I hear…



>>ROBOT: Room service! 

>>RACHEL: What kind of place do I Spy? Where am I?

>>GROUP: A hotel!

>>RACHEL: A hotel.

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


>>RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth too. 

Robots all over the world are helping hotel workers do jobs like cleaning rooms and providing room service. A robot named Relay can automatically deliver items like snacks, towels, and toothbrushes to guest rooms. In the country of Japan, a hotel welcomes guests at the front desk using robotic dinosaurs.


>>RACHEL: That’s it for Chompers today, but come back tonight for more computerized I Spies. Until then…

>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit.
