As March snow melted, the study began!
I drove to schools and followed my plan.
Eight sessions each, plus pre and post;
The robot was keeping the kids engrossed.
In April, one kid, who wasn't too shy,
Told me he was "actually part robot, so I can fly!"
(Tega, our robot, it's worth pointing out,
Just talks, and sits, and looks about.)
By May, I was glad if the robots didn't break,
But why oh why did I choose this headache?
Long-term studies will be my demise
Why oh why do I do this, you guys?
Oh wait, it's June, long-term studies are the best!
Look, I have data, totally worth being stressed!
Learning with robots over time--this is nice!
Awesome research, look: data! Worth the price.
