Summer Reading Programs



Chewonki Traveling Nature Program

Tuesday, June 20th at 6 p.m.

Many of the engineering challenges facing humans today are similar to difficulties that exist in the natural world.  Plants and animals have evolved through generations of successes and failures resulting in remarkable adaptations to over come these challenges. 

Join us as we explore the ways engineers have taken advantage of nature's bright ideas through biomimicry.  And meet some live animals that help us draw comparisons between human-made products and animal adaptations.  As we look for creative solutions  to future problems, perhaps we can find inspiration by observing nature in our own backyard.

You will receive a log book to record the titles of age appropriate books you choose to read.
