Figuring out how to clean up contaminated rivers is a big challenge. It's also tricky to work out where the most contaminated parts of a river system are and whether its fish are safe to eat. Watch this video and learn how engineering has helped to solve these problems. Why do you think engineers looked to the bottom of the food chain for help to develop a solution? What is the polyethylene sampler able to do? How? Can you think of other problems that have been solved by engineering inspired by nature?
