We Can Learn a Lot about Engineering From a Couple of Beavers

I know, what the heck does a beaver dam on a 130 acre lake have to do with modular?

Actually, it doesn't but it is all about engineering. With all the new High Tech gear and software available today, this lake was stopped from draining by two hard working creatures.

Welcome to the world of beaver engineering. Two little guys built a dam that is a marvel of design and engineering and they did it with no computers or heavy equipment.

This video by Jimmy Houston, a well known outdoors-man with a big following is well worth the watch. By the end I hope you, like me, will have gained an appreciation of how Mother Nature can sometimes give us a better and even simpler way to do big engineering jobs.
