This exciting new activity book from the AES is an eye-opener to some of the intricate mechanisms of the insect world. If the wings of insects contain no muscles, how can they fold and unfold them? How Do Insects Fold and Unfold Their Wings? explains how they do it, using origami models that you can try out yourself.
The author is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Entomological Society and a leading expert in insect flight. This is the first activity book to deal with this subject and contains istructions and diagrams showing you how to make your own wing-folding models. It is hoped that How Do Insects Fold and Unfold Their Wings? will spark an interest in entomology in those who encounter it, and make them think more closely about the intricate mechanisms of the insect world.
