Region 6 ESC, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will develop age-appropriate presentations for students Pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade. These presentations will teach students important school bus safety information, such as loading and unloading, school bus safety rules, danger zone and emergency evacuation. These presentations will feature a life-like school bus robot operated by safety specialists that will teach and interact with the audience with the goal of meeting the safety needs that are a concern. The robot enhances the presentation style and delivery, is remote and voice controlled. The robot is appealing and engaging to the children because it resembles a cartoon character, is child-sized, life-like and moves, speaks, drives and has working lights and a stop arm. Most importantly, the presentation featuring the school bus robot is customized to meet the specific needs of our program and the school districts within the service area.
