Working with Duke Students

We’ve been working all semester with engineering students at Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering. Two student teams challenged themselves to take on the project of making an automatic feeder for Florian our Skunk. Work has been going on behind the scenes since August, but after the Thanksgiving break prototypes will be going up in Florian’s home.

We’re very excited to see what has been designed for us and we are hopeful that this will improve Florian’s life here with us. Come and check out what’s going on.
