Biomimicry Global Design Challenge 

We are excited to offer this Biomimicry Design Challenge Module to teachers working with students who are entering the Institute’s Biomimicry Global Design Challenge or pursuing a similar long-term biomimicry project, such as a Capstone.

Grow your biomimicry program with the complete curriculum

In addition to this Biomimicry and Science Design Challenge Module, the complete curriculum includes three other modules, one for Chemistry, Physics, and Biology. The Biomimicry and Science: Applying Nature’s Strategies full curriculum introduces students to eco-literacy and design innovation concepts through project-based learning methodologies and by emphasizing real-world applications. 

At a time when we need sustainable solutions to solve many pressing local and global challenges, researchers are finding that solutions to many of these problems already exist in nature. Biomimicry is the practice of looking to nature for strategies to solve human challenges. 

Strategies to solve challenges

At a time when we need sustainable solutions to solve many pressing local and global challenges, researchers are finding that solutions to many of these problems already exist in nature. Biomimicry is the practice of looking to nature for strategies to solve human challenges. 

Nature as inspiration

This course introduces students to biomimicry via numerous striking examples, with connections to core content in chemistry, physics, and biology and ideas to help inspire students’ design ideas.
