Alcohol Drug and Safety Training Education Program “AD-A-STEP” for Life
Featuring Kid BOTS – (Kids, Bring on the SAFETY) – “How ‘Bot SAFETY?”
Region 6 ESC in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), offers this innovative and fun program designed to provide alcohol and drug safety activities, awareness and education to elementary students, teens and adults.
Teens/Adults - Program utilizes a variety of educational resources and activities including Distract-A-Match, Intoxiclock, Drunk Buster Goggles and equipment, pedal car and various educational handouts. This program is innovative and designed with age appropriate activities and materials.
Elementary audiences - Program utilizes “Kid BOTS” that are engaging, life-like robots operated by safety specialists that will teach and interact with children in Kindergarten through fifth grades with the goal of meeting the safety needs that are a concern to this age group. This information can be delivered in workshops, group assemblies, class presentations, extracurricular events, or any presentation style that is requested by the school district. These robotic characters have been used in crime prevention and safety for years. They enhance the presentation style and delivery, are remote and voice controlled and come with their own vehicles such as tricycle and ATV. The robots are appealing and engaging to the children because they resemble cartoon characters, are child-sized, life-like and move, speak and drive a “vehicle”. Most importantly, the vehicles and robots are customized to meet the specific needs of our program and the school districts within the service area.
