Humans often look to nature for lessons on how to solve problems. Engineers have built self-cooled buildings inspired by termite nests and designers are studying the peregrine falcon's flight as inspiration for future aircraft.
Bios (life) + mimesis (to imitate) = Biomimicry
In this activity, you will use biomimicry to design new versions of everyday objects! Use a natural organism's special features to design a new human object. Then sketch or design your new biomimicry mash-up!
