Backyard Squirrel Maze

Resource

Bird feeders are wonderful ways to introduce birdwatching to your students, but it often ends up as squirrel watching! In this incredibly fun 20-minute video, former NASA and Apple engineer Mark Rober crafts a backyard squirrel maze to confound, and reward, his squirrel friends. Consider using this video as a way to introduce a STEM design project to your students, in which they craft their own challenges for local critters!
