One lucky Calgary school will be paid a visit by Mondo Spider, a massive mechanical spider, and its eatART creators for a lesson in imagination and invention like no other!
Students will learn about the process of design and invention, learn about energy and mechanical engineering, and get up close and personal with a group of mad scientists and a big, stompin’ beast of a spider!
Who is Mondo Spider? She’s a 1000kg mechanical spider (we’re told she’s the fastest walking machine on Earth, too) conceived of and built by the mad scientists at eatART Foundation in Vancouver. eatART is a collective of engineers and artists who are passionate about energy education though the merger of science and art.
Mondo Spider will make plenty of other public appearances!
