NASA found the perfect partner in education in 2007 when the robot WALL·E, the title character in a computer-animated film from Pixar Studios, became a part of the space agency's family. WALL·E helps students across the country learn how scientists and engineers work together to accomplish robotic missions. NASA educator Marcianna Delaney discussed "Mapping the Moon with WALL·E and Children."
