Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Practically Paradise.
Just for fun, my selection is "SCRATCHbot" written by Adam Woog.
A SCRATCHbot is a robot rat designed to teach researchers about how the brain processes the sense of touch. A SCRATCHbot senses and negotiates through the space around it by utilizing stiff bristles located on the front and sides of its head, much as a real rat does.
Readers will discover how the SCRATCHbot came into being, how it is used at present and hopes for its use in the future as well as receiving a basic understanding of robots in general. Sure to fascinate and inspire young inventors.
