Strange Animals and Engineering

A dumbo octopus. A boxer crab. A flying fox. Many of our planet’s most unique animals have special abilities or features that are mimicked by engineers to solve our everyday problems.

Educators will explore two picture books about unique animals and then use these animals for inspiration to design and improve a helmet for bicyclists and scooter riders.

Books used in this workshop:

  • Who Are You Calling Weird? A Celebration of Weird and Wonderful Animals by Marilyn Singer
  • National Geographic Kids Readers: Animal Armor by Laura Marsh


September 10, 5-6:30 p.m.
