Park Science – Nature's Superpowers

Have you ever thought about how nature has inspired science innovation? Did you know that airplanes are modelled after birds?
Join this hands-on program where your child will investigate what we’ve learnt from nature to create amazing innovations in science. Children will investigate the concept of biomimicry, defined as ‘innovation inspired by nature’, or the practice of applying lessons from nature to scientific endeavours.
Children will enjoy hands-on activities, teamwork and use problem-solving skills to create their own nature-inspired invention in this fun-filled program.
This program is suitable for children aged 5 – 12 years.
