Explore how nature inspires human design and engineering! This week you will spend time looking at examples of exquisite "engineering" in the natural world. Get ready for adventure with an engineering and nature scavenger hunt, dissecting a flower, fish or grasshopper, building different bird nests and beaver lodges, and designing your own insect traps. From spider webs to pitcher plants and flying machines, you will discover the deep connections between nature and the human-made environment.
