Build your very own insect trap

Learn about the different trapping mechanisms of carnivorous plants, then build a trap using everyday objects to take on the challenge set by the science educator. Careful! If your trap doesn’t meet the requirements, you’ll have to improve it learning lessons along the way! If the invention works, other more difficult challenges will be proposed.

Places limited! Upon arriving at the Jardin botanique Reception Centre, ask an attendant where the activity is taking place to maximize your changes of having a place.
