Look for this workshop
next season!

Many of our most useful inventions (planes, velcro, camouflage) have been copied from nature, both plants and animals. During this workshop, students will learn about this concept, known as biological mimicry, and then use it to design their own biology-inspired inventions. Students will use their creativity to make up a new product or idea or mode of transportation based on their favorite animal (or plant!). After sharing their inventions with the group, they’ll write a product review of someone else’s new invention.
