Telepresence Robots


MissingSchool launches telepresence robot pilot to keep sick kids connected to their regular schools


MissingSchool is launching a telepresence robot pilot with funding from St.George Foundation’s new Inspire Grant. MissingSchool’s pilot will place up to 75 telepresence robots in willing schools to demonstrate that continuous two-way connection is possible between seriously sick children and their classrooms when they are absent, missing school.

The pilot will begin in the ACT before being rolled out to other states.

If you’re a sick kid, the family of a sick kid, a teacher, principal, or health professional interested in participating in the pilot, or if you’d just like to keep up to date with the pilot, please register your interest below:
