What does a robotics engineer do?

Today, Mrs. Rikki Valverde treated Maayan students by visiting and explaining what she does as a robotics engineer.  Students learned about several real-life challenges that robotics engineers are currently trying to solve.  Mrs. Valverde showed us a video of her work on creating an exoskeleton to help paralyzed people walk again.  Another exciting project she is currently working on is to create a self-driving truck.  Perhaps one day when self-driving trucks are on the road, we will know who was responsible for that invention!
