I recently read a really cool book on robots. The author, Katherine Clay, did a great job a showing several jobs where robots can do dangerous jobs for people (Clay, 2014).
I watched a cool video about robotic dogs washing dishes (CNN, 2016.) I bet my mom would love a robotic dog that could wash the dishes! I think elderly people and disabled people would really benefit from a robotic dog for washing the dishes.
At school today I asked around to find a teacher who has a pet in his/her classroom. Mrs. Walsh has a pet fish. I asked her about the benefits and challenges of having a pet in the classroom. (Byrd, 2016)
