Jerry the Bear will be our guest.... well Jerry's creators. 

Jerry the Bear, helps kids diagnosed with type 1 diabetes master their medical procedures - from monitoring blood glucose levels to maintaing a healthy diet - through play. We call Jerry an empathetic robot because he forms a bond with children that helps them to learn and cope with their disease. Jerry's aim is ultimately to improve medical outcomes for these kids and enable them to live long and healthy lives. To see Jerry in the hands of kids, check out our video here.

Hannah and Aaron from Jerry's creative team will join us. Hannah is a maker and a doodler. She loves to take an idea to an actual product/system that is intuitive and simple. She is also passionate about inventing an educational model that fosters creativity using design and technology. Aaron is a maker; from sculptures to business, he is fascinated with the process of taking an idea from concept to reality. He is passionate about creating physical computing interfaces that change the way in which we interact with technology.
