You're on assignment for National Geographic. How do you keep a camera safe from the jaws and paws of animals? This is a problem that National Geographic explorers face in the field.

YOUR CHALLENGE: Create an animal-proof container to protect a camera from an animal of your choice. Your solution must have a minimal impact on both the animal and the environment.

Watch the Introduction video to learn about the Engineering Exploration Challenge. Then watch the Animal-Proofing video to gear up for your assignment. Use the National Geographic Engineering Process to design, build, and test a solution to this Challenge. 

You can also check out this video of a Google+ Hangout featuring students and their solutions to this and other challenges. Students discussed their work with National Geographic engineers and explorers.
