The pupils, from Kingsbury High School, in Princes Avenue, will become the first in London to host NAO, a robot who will demonstrate how he can engage with and inspire students.
The school’s Head of Technology, Chris Carver, is currently working in partnership with John Pinkney from the Warwick ICT Development Service.
