Watch: Young kid battling cancer able to go to school thanks to robot




A young boy suffering from cancer has been able to attend his Brisbane primary school thanks to a uniform-wearing robot.

A year five student, Brodie is battling Leukaemia and has not been able to attend his primary school due to his therapy and need for rest and recovery.

But with the use of a telepresence robot he's been able to cruise around the classroom and visit friends. 

"We've been extremely fortunate to have one of our parents organise for the loan of a telepresence robot," wrote Ferny Grove State School on a video shared to Facebook.

The school said global consulting and technology company Deswik provided the use of the technology that allows him to roll around the classroom and participate in reading groups.
