Life on earth has been addressing issues of disease, water purification, water storage, social networking, carbon storage, and much more for 3.8 billion years; in short, life on earth in itself is genius. And yet humans, in our short time on earth, have often ignored this wisdom in designing products and systems. Biomimicry, however, is a mindset and necessary action that reverses this in an effort to live more sustainably. In this lesson, students will learn what biomimicry is by examining a handful of examples. Then, students have the opportunity to innovate on their own and develop a plan for a product or technology that draws inspiration from nature.
