Yesterday the SSPCA came in to our class to talk to us about animal safety and how to keep animals happy. Then we had to build robots in the form of ‘Caitlin the chicken’ and we had to use our skills as a team to build it. We had to answer questions about animal safety and also animal welfare. If we got one right then we got to fit a piece onto the chicken then we had to use our programming skills to make her move and also make her make sounds. We all really enjoyed it and we would love Vanessa to come again. We then went over that a real chicken would not do what we want it to as it is a wild animal and goes into flights or fight mode if it is frightened.
Thank you to Vanessa from the SSPCA for a fun and informative workshop.
