Calling all engineers! Can you build like a beaver or a bee? The animal kingdom is full of engineers and architects that can change their habitats. Learning more about how animals impact the environment can inspire human invention too! In this school break series, we will meet animal engineers and investigate the methods and designs they use to change their worlds!

This inquiry-based, child-led virtual experience features hands-on activities each day, exhibit exploration at all five of our parks, and up-close animal experiences!
