Learning from nature

For the first time, workshops can now be booked at the new ‘rangerlabs’, and the motto is ‘learning from nature’. Our ‘rangerlabs’ are research laboratories where you can explore, experiment and conduct all sorts of tests under the supervision of our National Park Rangers.

    What are bionics? How is it that a larch tree is able to withstand the wind? What can we learn from bearded vultures, hawks and marmots? Together we’ll explore nature’s ingenious tricks and come up with ideas for new technological achievements.
