  2/2  10:00 am-12:00 pm - Biomimicry Design Challenge  

 

Biomimicry is the practice of taking inspiration from nature to create solutions to meet human needs in a sustainable way. Over the course of this program students will be introduced to the concept of Biomimicry, and study real rocky intertidal animals as inspiration for sustainable design. They will participate in a trip to the tidepools in Pillar Point, Half Moon Bay, where they will apply their knowledge of Biomimicry to brainstorm creative design solutions inspired by the organisms that they find. Using the information they have learned about coastal animals, students will then apply this knowledge by designing their own sustainable research station in small groups and presenting it to their peers.
