On 16 December, YASYT, will be taking part in La Marató de TV3.
Pepper, our social robot, will be taking part in La Marató de TV3, a 15 hour long fund-raising program. La Marató de TV3 is a charitable initiative launched by Catalan television and the Fundació La Marató de TV3 and is aimed at raising funds for scientific research into illnesses for which no cure has yet been found. This program does more than simply raise funds; it seeks to raise awareness and provide information on illnesses whilst encouraging scientific research to prevent and cure them.
The objectives of La Marató de TV3 are scientific outreach, awareness-raising, and health education, and it aims to improve people’s understanding of science.
Pepper will make a number of appearances in the program in order to display certain ways of making medical diagnoses and treatments. And, with Pepper’s particular empathy, this this will enable the program to be both fun and informative. Pepper is always at the ready to help the most at need.
