In this video, 10-year-old Zain from the Kidspiration team interviews Madeline about her passion for, and experience with, designing and testing better ways to communicate with machines. Gannon talks at length about her fascination with robots and machines, how they interact with humans, and how her background in both science and the arts prepared her to work with large industrial robots like Mimus, the one featured in the video.
