Note "Technology inspired by animals" --Cover.
Summary Throughout time, people have looked to the skies and dreamed of flying. In 1903, the Wright brothers finally achieved flight, but only after years of studying birds. In Animal Tech : Wings and Beaks, readers will follow the stories of the scientists and engineers who have observed, studied, and micmicked the abilities of flying creatures, from bees and dragonflies to bats and birds. Students will be inspired to explore STEM fields after learning how the study of the skies has led to fascinating and life-changing technology that has shaped our world.
