Robots Help Students Improve Communication
Milo can dance, play, talk, walk and blink like most kids in Michigan City Area Schools. But he has one difference: He is a robot.
Milo helps students who have autism and communication challenges, as well as special needs pre-K students in the district. A similar robot, Carver, is also in the classroom.
Michigan City Area Schools was part of an Indiana University research project to pilot Milo. Since then, the district received a grant and three more robots. Now there are two versions of Carver and Milo spread through Knapp, Pine and Joy elementary schools and Michigan City High School.
