JR. Scientist Mini Strandbeest: Animaris Ordis Parvus
Create your own mini strandbeest, and watch as it explores the beach, a sidewalk, or your living room floor.
This model represents Theo Jansen’s Animaris Ordis Parvus, an extremely adaptable beest that exploits wind and human power alike to expand its territory. Enjoy a full-color science guide that includes a Netherlands Travelogue with Mini Beest, a fascinating interview with Jansen, and complete instructions on how to assemble and use the Mini Strandbeest. The science guide also features a few pages where you can make your own notes, so feel free to jot down detailed scientific observations, ones you might use to invent your own imaginative creations. The model kit contains all the pieces you’ll need to construct Animaris Ordis Parvus, but make sure you have scissors and a utility knife. This product is appropriate for children ages eight and older.
