Xtreme Rat Challenge
Normally when there is a room full of people and rats it doesn’t end well for the rats except at Nebraska Wesleyan University during the 39th annual Xtreme Rat Challenge. The competition is between students as their final demonstration project for Basic Learning Principles psychology class. The students work with the rats all semester training in behaviorist learning theories and teaching their rats to complete challenges. It was a lot of fun and amazing what the students and their rats have learned.
