    It's so good to hear this experiment is working so well. Next step - department of education funding?

    It seems to have been well accepted at a football club Everton too. Usually a child gets to accompany the Captain out on the pitch, get to meet players, have tours etc, but the robot was used to give the same experience. You can't get much of a better advert for inclusion than for the technology to be seen as socially good and cool?

    I really like the photo too.
