Ages: Recommended for K-5
$40 per camper ($35 per camper for AAHOM and LSNC members)
 
Within the animal kingdom, there are many different “jobs” animals take on in order to survive. Many of these jobs involve engineering! Come explore the world of engineering through the eyes of an animal such as a bird, mammal or insect and learn how us humans can study these animal behaviors to invent or improve designs in our own world! Students will be introduced to the concepts of engineering as well as explore four human engineering careers that relate to behaviors found within the animal kingdom.
 
Each registration comes with one included materials kit with supplies for one child to participate. You may purchase additional materials kits on the add-ons screen if you have more than one child participating.
