# 1823

Experience first-hand the life and science of the Rhinoceros Strandbeest.

Read through the twenty-four page book to discover its birth and history and then follow along with the highly detailed instructions to build one of your own.

Strandbeests are wind-powered machines that walk like living creatures. Theo Jansen, a Dutch Physicist turned artist, started creating them in 1990.

He first made them with plastic piping, but when he realized they needed to be built bigger for more efficient movement, he switched to wood panels.

Thus, the Animaris Rhinoceros Transport was born. (It looks kind of like a rhinoceros)

With all the parts included and each page packed with amazing pictures and information, the Jr. Scientist Rhinoceros Mini-beest Model Kit turns young builders into future engineers.
