Ever wonder about Spiders? They are one of nature's greatest engineers!
Spider Web Challenge: Not all spiders spin webs. However, the spiders that spin webs do it for one reason only: to catch prey!
And when it comes to prey, for most spiders, that means insects.

The Challenge - you will design your own web. One that will trap the greatest number of insects!
Use provided materials to design a web that will capture even the smallest fly.
