Creating a Nature-Inspired Maker Community
Biomimicry PhD Fellows from the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM
Tackle your maker ideas using biomimicry. Biomimicry derives from bios (life) and mimesis (to imitate), and aims to solve human problems by imitating processes, systems and modules of nature. It comes from an understanding that nature has been perfected over millions of years with some guidelines, and learning these time-tested lessons can help us in developing better sustainable solutions for our problems.
In this workshop, you’ll learn how to tackle challenges as a biomimicry professional; abstracting the challenge at hand, looking at life for inspirations, incorporating your observations into your development and finally coming up with unique designs and solutions. We will look at some of life principles and how they can be mimicked in the production.
