Attention please! We need some creative minds to problem solve for our future!!! How will we do that??? Nature may very well hold many answers and biomimicry is the key! Did you know that the beak of a kingfisher bird inspired high speed trains? Or that the squids color changing skin helped us to design futuristic camouflage? There are more effective wind tunnel models and turbines inspired by humpback whale flippers that improve the safety and performance of even airplanes. The animal world is full of crazy adaptations that people can learn from! Investigate the world of motion, machines, and technology, as we take a look at how the human world is inspired by nature to solve day-to-day problems. InvestiGATORS will meet some of our Eco Animals and watch how they move, eat, and use their adaptations to survive efficiently. Using them as live inspiration to draw up their own wild Biomimicry designs, investigators will create a model prototype of their invention! Will you create shoes that let you walk up a wall like a gecko, or a flight suit that lets you soar like an eagle? Join us and find out, as we put our imagination skills to the test!
