Invented by Animals

Sunday 26 Jun
Wildflower Stage

Winner of the Blue Peter Book Awards 2022, Invented by Animals introduces us to the animal inventors who have shared their super inventing powers to make amazing things for humans.

We have invented ways of solving problems, making unbelievable materials, ways of getting around and working out how to survive on our own for millions of years. Often human scientists try and solve a problem or invent a new tool and they realise that animals have already invented it for them.

Sometimes when a human inventor gets stuck, they come to the animal kingdom to see if we can help them out.  Join author, Christiane Dorion, to meet the crème de la crème of animal innovators who have created or are in the process of inventing things that people use every day.

Meet the shark who invented a pair of swimming shorts so fast, they were banned from the Olympic games. And meet the snail who has invented a house that stays cool inside even in the desert.
