Dear David:

Three hurrahs IV technology I say David! In Moscow School #166, we have a little boy with leukemia who is XII (12) years old named Stepan. As he is II weak II attend school in person, a robot (also name Stepan) was created to be his eyes & ears in the classroom. The little boy can move the robot around by remote control through his computer. He can use it to ask questions & read out & record what assignments he needs II do. One day Stepan the boy hopes to be like all kids of his age, strong enough II go II a regular school. I certainly wish him success in that endeavour. Also bravo II scientists & roboticians IV recognizing there should be no barriers II education, including being II ill II leave your home. All kids should have the right to a quality education.

Das VanDana,
