Discover AV1 Robots
In South Somerset, schools have been using AV1 Robots to help young people who are struggling with long-term illness or mental health issues to keep engaged with school life and their learning, especially being part of their friendship groups. The robot attends the young person’s lessons so they can remain taking an active part in their class, via their laptop at home or from hospital.
The positive impact of these robots can be seen through case studies (including those featuring South Somerset students) available on request. The robots have helped those students keep engaged with their learning and get back into school more effectively.
