Through a series of adaptations, a new Super Insect has developed. You and your team of entomologists have discovered this Super Insect and you need to tell the world about it! Your job is to bring this new insect to life in a 3-D model. You will build a museum exhibit that shows the ecosystem in which this insect lives, and you will build the insect to put in that ecosystem. One aspect that your team has discovered is that this insect, in addition to its three primary body parts, has incredible sense receptors. Be sure that as you design the insect to successfully live in the ecosystem you've chosen, that you also pay attention to the specialized senses that your insect has. You will need to use the guiding papers to help you engineer your insect before you bring it to life. Once you have a plan, begin building your exhibit! If you can make the exhibit interactive for your visitor, that's even better.
