Stories that reflect the real world

Chapter 2

When Tara opened her eyes, she was in a laboratory surrounded by robots. There were robot hands, robot arms and robot legs.

Oh! A robot on wheels bumped into her legs. WOAH! Tara ducked as a robot with propellers swerved around her head. 4

“Sorry!” said the boy controlling it. “You appeared right in its flight path!”

A girl scooped up the robot by Tara’s feet. “That’s Ortez –he’s a robotics engineer. He designed all these machines,” she explained.

“And that’s Ayesha,” smiled Ortez. “She teaches the robots how to learn from their surroundings and from their mistakes. It’s called artificial intelligence or AI.” The robots are probably cleverer than I am, thought Tara.

Humpbacks are known as “acrobats of the sea” because they leap out of the water. This is called breaching. Humpbacks breach to impress other whales and remove little creatures like barnacles and sea lice from their bodies. sea lice barnacles on a humpback whale’s tail 6 61820_P001_024_RB.indd 6 19/11/19 4:35
