        SciGirls | Mother Nature's Shoes 02: Research

        This SciGirls video highlights the research stage of engineering design as the girls look at how animals have adapted to get around on slippery surfaces. When creating a product inspiration can come from anywhere. For the SciGirls, inspiration for creating better non-slip winter shoes comes from animals. The girls do their research at two local zoos and observe mammals, reptiles, birds, and even insects to see how they have adapted to stay upright on slippery surfaces.
