This activity first asks the students to study the patterns of bird flight and understand that four main forces affect the flight abilities of a bird. They will study the shape, feather structure, and resulting differences in the pattern of flight. They will then look at several articles that feature newly designed planes and the birds that they are modeled after. The final component of this activity is to watch the Nature documentary, "Raptor Force" which chronicles the flight patterns of birds, how researchers study these animals, and what interests our military and aeronautical engineers about these natural adaptations. This activity serves as an extension to the biomimetics lesson. Although students will not be using this information in the design process for their desert resort, it provides interesting information pertaining to the current use of biomimetics in the field of aviation. Students may extend their design process by using this information to create a means of transportation to and from the resort if they chose to.

This e-study gathers resources for practitioners who seek to design and implement culturally responsive evaluations. The study highlights the expansion of the field of evaluation to national and contexts where evaluation has been historically missing. In doing so, the study engages the learners in critical thinking about the nature and dissemination of evaluation evidence for decision-making that leads to equitable distribution of resources.
