Build a Better World with Biomimicry

Bring Chewonki’s Biomimicry presentation to your community this summer and learn how nature can inspire us to Build a Better World. This program is only available for the summer of 2017.

Many of the engineering challenges facing humans today are similar to difficulties that exist in the natural world. Plants and animals have evolved through generations of successes and failures resulting in remarkable adaptations to overcome these challenges.

Join us as we explore the ways engineers have taken advantage of nature’s bright ideas through biomimicry. And meet some live animals that help us draw comparisons between human-made products and animal adaptations. As we look for creative solutions to future problems, perhaps we can find inspiration by observing nature in our own backyard!
