We asked you, if you could program your robot to do anything, what would you have it do! 

Where to Listen


>> Chomperbot: It’s Coding Week, and I’m your friendly robot host Chomperbot! Part of my programming was to listen to every episode of Chompers, and I heard you Chompions once answered a question for us about Robots! We asked you, if you could program a robot to do anything for you, what would it be? Here’s Rachel with the answers you sent us.

>>RACHEL: Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, but don’t brush too hard.

>>KIDS: 3, 2,1 brush!

>>RACHEL: Chores are a bore! Am I right? And some of you say you would build a robot to help clean up around the house. Thad wants a robot to pick up his toys and Evangeline’s robot would do the dishes. 

Jackson says, even if he built his own robot, he would still wipe down the dinner table himself. He wouldn’t want the cleaning spray to get his robot wet, and make it malfunction…


>>RACHEL: We have two words for you, Jackson - Robot. Raincoat. 


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


>>RACHEL: -and keep on brushing. 

Sam, Leo, Cora, Chloe, Violet, and Henry all want robots to clean their room. Benjamin would build a robot to make his bed. Annelyse says her room-cleaning robot would look like a robot bunny

>>RACHEL: Robots don’t only have to do work for us. Taylor would build a robot to dance with! And Drew wants a robot to play baseball


>>RACHEL: Brynn wants a robot to do crafts and Liam wants a robot that would pick flowers for him.

Switch to the bottom of your mouth…


>>RACHEL: and brush the molars in the way back.

Here’s some FOOD for thought. Henry would build a robot to make all his favorite foods. Miles wants his robot to make pie and hot chocolate…


>>RACHEL: Elijah’s robot would make him an omelet. 


>>RACHEL: Anton doesn’t want his robot to MAKE food. He wants it to EAT food!  Anton says his robot would hide under the dinner table and eat the food he doesn’t like, especially zucchini and olives. 


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


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

Robots could also help with animals at home. Mara would build a robot to translate what her cats say so she can talk to them and understand them…


>>RACHEL: Emery says their grandma has FOUR dogs, so they want a robot to walk all of them.



>>RACHEL: That's it for Chompers today, but we will be back tonight with more hi-tech tricks and tasks for robots sent in by you Chompions. Until then, make sure you rinse and…

>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
