We spot another use for cardboard! 🦔📱📦

We all know why you’ve been on the edge of your seat. You just couldn’t wait for the first episode of Project Nature’s Way to drop. Well… scoot back because you’ve got a show to enjoy!

Today, Lisa faces renowned judge and exhibit design extraordinaire, Michelle! Will she rise to the challenge and prove herself a master of mimicry?

Watch to find out (and download our activity guide thetechathome.org/biomimicry)! 😏
