How Can You Hear Like an Owl?

The summer camp topic this week at TRC is Biomimicry.  Biomimicry looks at elements of nature for inspiration to solve human problems or address human needs.  The evolution of plant and animal adaptations, for example, shows they have "solved" problems by being able to survive.

The campers used materials to create their own versions of “owl facial discs”, to mimic this important owl adaptation related to hearing. 

Two very creative campers, Athena and Elise, used some “down time” in between activities to show their creative sides.  They agreed to let us share their artwork.  Beautiful!
