A robot from Japan named "Pepper" is the newest edition at Tutor Me SOS in Stamford.
The robot, the only one of its kind in Connecticut, is being programmed to prepare kids for the future and will interact with the 500 students enrolled at the center.
Tutor Me SOS owner Mona Mitri says the robot is so impressive, with its ability to communicate by voice and touch.
"It's unbelievable because no matter where you move, it follows you," she says.
Pepper's battery lasts roughly 14 hours. It cost about $30,000 to manufacture in Japan.
