About Course

There’s a big problem at the local zoo; the animals are very unhappy! They have outgrown their cages and are bored by their basic, concrete surroundings. In these lessons, campers will learn about engineering, mathematics, architecture, and biology while advancing their literacy skills through a variety of daily, animal-based story reads. They will work as zoo engineers and zoologists while using the Engineering Design Process to design and build solutions to a variety of challenges. Discover just how much work goes into creating an efficient zoo in Zany Zoo Engineers!
