Puzzle #4: The Cutting Tool

Requirements: Level 2 Exploration, Master Scientist
Action: Drop a master scientist on the shinny object to the right of the sticks on the top right of the map (number 9). The object appears only after you reach level 2 exploration. The scientist will carry the object to the science hut. Once that is done you can drop the same or any other master scientist on the sticks near the shinny object and he/she will carry the sticks back to the science hut. Wait for the scientist to build the cutting tools.
Description: "Your scientists fashioned a new tool! Stout branches combined with naturally sharp stone tips, found by experienced eyes, combined to make an effective tool for cutting down fierce vegetation."
