SSPCA Workshop

   

On the 27th of February 2019, Lindsey from the SSPCA came in to speak to us about what they do and the animals they look after.

First, she told us what the SSPCA stands for. It stood for the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Then Lindsay got a card game out that we played in fours. It was a bit like a Top Trumps Game about different animals. We learned some very interesting facts from them. After that, Lindsey answered some of our questions. One of the questions was ‘what the most dangerous animal you’ve rescued?’ and surprisingly someone had been keeping anacondas in a small flat in barrel, which I think surprised most people.

Finally we had to follow instructions to build a robotic rabbit and then used a tablet to program it to turn and move forwards and backwards, left and right. Once we got the hang of moving the robot, we also experimented with coding it to create sounds and we challenged each other by creating obstacles to move the rabbit around.
