A Problem With Birds

By Tatum W.

Today in robotics we had a guest speaker, Mrs. Dena Dickerson. She shared a problem about birds with us. There were some birds on lock and dam that were pooping all over it and ruining the concrete and machinery. We did not know the solution, so we shared the ideas we had to fix the problem. She said they were all great ideas and she was glad we could think of it right off of the top of our minds. The solution Mrs. Dickerson came up with, that worked well, was to use a border collie to scare off the birds. The dog is now an official federal employee and does a great job!
