Using biomimicry, military forces are developing many new animal-inspired technologies to help keep us safe. Rich in STEM and STEAM content, the high-interest titles in Beasts and the Battlefield bring old and new nature-based science to life.
The world can be a dangerous place. Over time, animals evolved many natural defences to help them survive. Combat during wartime is extremely dangerous. Why not look to nature to find the best defences for soldiers on the battlefield? The Armed Forces have done just that for hundreds of years.

From the first feathered arrows to tomorrow's high-tech weaponry, take a look at how military technology often imitates the natural weapons of animals to help soldiers succeed in combat.
