you think that a robot can survive in the wilderness?
A violent hurricane tossed a ship on a vast ocean. It was loaded with a cargo of hundreds of brand new robots in crates. The ship was sinking. Some crates of unlucky robots sank to the bottom of the ocean. Some crates of luckier robots floated toward a wild island. Most crashed on the rocky shore and shattered to pieces, but the crate of the luckiest robot was carried by a wave to a tall rock out of the ocean. It was the only survivor.
COMING TO LIFE
The first creatures to discover the crate with a new robot inside was a gang of curious otters. They squeezed through a crack in the robot's crate and discovered the undamaged robot inside. One otter discovered an important button on the back of the robot's head. The otter wanted to know what it would do, so he pushed it. The robot whirred and then opened its eyes. Its computer brain booted up. It began to speak. The gang of otters ran for their lives.
WHAT DID THE ROBOT'S FUTURE HOLD?
Would life be easy for a robot in the wilderness? Where would she go? What trouble would she have? Could she solve problems? Why would she have difficulty making friends? Would she have enemies? How would storms affect her? Would she find a purpose in the wilderness? How could she be a mother? Why would she become The Wild Robot?
