Robot ensures teen won't miss school while fighting disease
While most 13-year-olds look forward to days off from class, Emily Kolenda wants to go to school. The sixth-grade student at Monsignor Slade Catholic School has had a rare disease — acute disseminated encephalomyelitis — since she was 9. She rarely missed school before an MRI revealed lesions on her brain. Now, she won’t have to miss class. Emily has a robot — dubbed W.O.A.W.O.A. —that takes her place at her Glen Burnie school. With the help of an iPad connected to it, Emily can “walk” through the school, talk to her classmates and answer questions.
