Create: 2.5 – 4 yrs

Have you ever heard of a walking sculpture? How about a structure that just breezes along using only the power of the wind? Creativity and a love for art and engineering have led Dutch artist Theo Jansen to spend over 30 years developing the incredible wind-fueled creations known as strandbeests (or ‘beach animals’). Today we’ll take our inspiration from the strandbeests as we explore a variety of materials and experiment with different ways to build structures and harness the breeze!
As we mould dough, arrange sticks and hang sails, we’ll barely notice all the crucial STEM learning skills we pick up along the way.
