Robot Heart Stories

In an age where technology is both a boon and a bugbear, it's inspiring to see technology and creativity working together in a way that inspires children. This short video tells of an unique experiential learning project by Canadian storyteller and film-maker Lance Weiler. Learn how a plush toy robot from outer space will find her way home thanks to children in Montreal and Los Angeles.
