Experience a unique, project-based virtual program that brings the Phoenix Zoo to you! Join Zoo educators for one-hour live, virtual sessions each day during this 3-day project as we learn in-depth about orangutans and create a new invention for them. Project Orangutan is fun, fascinating and promotes hands-on, authentic problem-solving. Appropriate for ages 9-12.
Focusing on the critically endangered Bornean orangutan, students will:
- Discover how the Zoo cares for their complex needs
- Use the engineering design process to build an enrichment item that stimulates their natural behavior
- Research orangutan conservation and how responsible consumer choices can make an impact on their future
