They look more like WALL-E than Rosie ... and their names change depending on what the classroom kids decide to call them when they visit (yesterday, they were Sharon and Tommy).

But as Erica Bjelland of RREAL says, "Everyone loves robots."  And these clever creations with solar panels on their heads are teaching kids how solar power works and even giving them a chance to practice some basic engineering.
