From Gecko Feet to Sticky TapeBook - 2006
Sometimes the most amazing inventions don't have to be 'far out there' and space-aged. Sometimes Nature can lend a hand, to help us conceive of adaptations that are right in front of us. The scientists of the Gecko Team have solved the age-old mystery of gecko climbing and sticking power. Geometry, not chemistry, was the answer. They are using their newfound knowledge to invent gecko tape that will stick anywhere and never lose its adhesive quality. While learning about biomimicry, your readers will activate their creative centers to analyze what's around them that can lend a hand to new ideas.
