Robot teaches British students to recycle
An environmentally friendly robot called Recycler is on a mission to teach British primary school students that it's cool to save the earth.
Recycler's personality is controlled by a remote control device which is hidden in the pocket of his sidekick. The controller's signals are sent to his wire-filled brain to direct his speech, movements, facial features, and dancing.
Recycler has already visited 8-thousand schools and spoken to one-and-a-half million children in the UK. His shows are around 45-minutes long and include story-telling, quizzes, and sing-a-longs.
