Resource Description
BUILD A BEAVER DAM KIT®. Acorn Naturalists. Beavers have long used STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) to build their amazing water retention structures. There is, however, a major difference between human built dams and beaver dams - beaver dams are better designed for wildlife. Beaver dams naturally accommodate multiple species, such as salmon who find ways through these "leaky" dams and young fish that ply the placid waters behind the dams. This kit contains everything necessary to design and replicate a working beaver dam. The challenge is to build a dam that is "leaky" yet retains enough water to form a pond. This kit includes a 11 inch x 21 inch heavy duty black tray fitted with a drain and flexible water exit tube, 24 wooden shims for changing the angle of the tray (to alter water flow and retention dynamics), a collection of smooth rocks, twigs, moss, and a packet of pre-moistened, reusable brown clay. You will also need the following items (not included): two buckets, a measuring cup or beaker, and a cell phone or stopwatch for keeping track of time. Creative STEM fun for ages 8 to adult. #KIT-23036.
