A 2 year old who can’t walk gets love from a high school robotics class!

Wait! There’s a  class called robotics? Yes! A high school robotics team in Farmington, Minnesota, has changed a 2-year-old boy’s life.

Cillian Jackson has a genetic condition with symptoms that are similar to cerebral palsy, making it difficult for him to walk. Rogue Robotics, Farmington High School’s robotics team, swooped in to help when they found out his insurance company refused to pay for the wheel chair he needed.

The team got to work, modifying a Power Wheels toy car provided by Cillian’s parents. On top of that, the team replaced the toy’s electrical components, mounted a seat from a bicycle carrier and designed a joystick with a 3D printer. So COOL,  and kids doing the right thing!
