“You can style your hair, but can you grow wings?”
What we do at Amazing Bugs!
Take a look under the hood of a beetle and see what makes it tick.
Engineers take inspiration from the insect world in developing nano-technologies. Learn how and apply the science with your partner. Consider the possibilities for application in civil, chemical, electrical, mechanical, industrial, material science, environmental, computer science and aerospace engineering.
And it doesn’t end there. Insects and bugs, large and small, are vital to sustainable agriculture and the incredible diversity of life on Earth.
Outside we will explore habitats and adaptation. Hone your observational skills and record your findings like a true naturalist. Share your discoveries.
Outside, think and act like an insect during games and challenges.
