Bird Nest STEM Challenge

Birds are expert nest engineers and they make their nests with lots of different materials. Their ability to build nests that support and protect their eggs and chicks is an adaptation that has helped them to survive and thrive within their habitats.

In this STEM Challenge, your task is to build a model nest that can protect and support at least 2 bird eggs. Just like real birds, you can use a combination of natural and man-made materials to build your nest.
