Description

Halloween might have passed but we still wanted to get in on the fun! This week we're looking at the idea of why are kids so creepy? This was a listener suggestion from Chris W. so thank you very much for the idea! We dive into some creepy stories and discuss the Uncanny Valley phenomenon to explain why kids (and realistic robots) can be so creepy.  If you want to see the Uncanny Valley in action, head to our website and click on today's episode. The episode picture is a creep life-like robot. If you want more science related posts, check out our Instagram. We put up interesting and educational science posts throughout the week!
