Learn how eagles use their beaks in a fun, hands on activity with Deborah Lee Rose, author of Beauty and the Beak: How Science, Technology, and a 3D-Printed Beak Rescued a Bald Eagle. Beauty, the wild bald eagle, made world news when she was illegally shot, rescued, and finally saved with a pioneering, 3D-printed prosthetic beak. Beauty and the Beak follows Beauty close up from the moment she uses her baby beak to emerge from her egg, through her hunt when she uses her powerful adult beak to feed herself. This uplifting story continues through her rescue after being shot, and her rehabilitation with her new 3D-printed beak. Every participant gets to handle a 3D-printed, life-size replica of Beauty's prosthetic beak and compare their human arm span to a bald eagle's wingspan. Sponsored by City of Fairfax Commission on the Arts.
