Miller, Tessa. Animal tech.
Note "Technology inspired by animals"--Cover.
Summary "Floating through space, a robot crawls along a space station. The skin covering the robot's parts lets it stick to the metal like a gecko sticks to a tree. This is not science fiction - it is science fact, the product of a long process of observation, study, and mimicry of the animal world. In Animal Tech: Creepy and Crawley, readers will learn the story of Geckskin and five other technologies inspired by reptiles and insects. Students will follow the stories of remarkable people working in STEM fields who have developed these life-changing technologies." -- back cover.
