This is the text (if you need help).

Scientists have found a new way to get water. It is a material that gets water from the air. They got the idea from a desert beetle. The beetle can live in very dry deserts. Its shell is covered in bumps. These collect drops of water from the air. Scientists will now make their own materials to get water from the air.

This technology could help us. It could help power plants, heating and air conditioning. Power plants quickly change steam to water. The new technology could help make this happen faster. A scientist wants to see more new technology from nature. She said everybody is excited about "bio" materials research.
