Fontenot says she heard about a robot from a television documentary she saw several years ago that could effectively go to school for him. She checked with the Education Service Center in Huntsville and found there was one available. On Tuesday C.J.’s robot went to classes at Brenham Elementary while C.J. stayed at his Chappell Hill home, getting the lesson.
The robot has C.J.’s face on it and his classmates can interact with him through the four foot high machine. C.J., has a laptop computer at his home and appears on a video screen on the robot.
