Host and Marine Biologist, Danni Washington, relates how current technology was inspired by nature, and how modern innovators are continuing with this practice. We will whirl around in airplanes inspired by birds, and in helicopters inspired by the dragonfly, and even jump from a few such vehicles to illustrate how wingsuits were invented based on the flying squirrel. But engineers aren't the only scientists looking toward nature. We will also meet with biologists studying the behavior patterns of ants; architects who design "living buildings," and roboticists who are making their designs bigger, stronger, and faster based on animals. This series will show kids how understanding nature can help them make the next great discovery.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Host and Marine Biologist, Danni Washington, relates how current technology was inspired by nature, and how modern innovators are continuing with this practice. We will whirl around in airplanes inspired by birds, and in helicopters inspired by the dragonfly, and even jump from a few such vehicles to illustrate how wingsuits were invented based on the flying squirrel. But engineers aren't the only scientists looking toward nature. We will also meet with biologists studying the behavior patterns of ants; architects who design "living buildings"; and roboticists who are making their designs bigger, stronger, and faster based on animals. This series will show kids how understanding nature can help them make the next great discovery.
