8–10 years old "Natural talent" workshop

Nature talent

Have you ever felt an elephant's thick hide, the serrated nose of a swordfish or the soft mane of a lion? Touching is allowed! You'll discover forms in nature and the purposes they serve. What are the different talents of plants and animals? Gather a complete set of four. By using a digital microscope, you can discover the talents of the smallest living things.
