The best way to introduce biomimicry to students is to let them ‘have a go’. In the Scheme of Work we offer a one-hour session to introduce biomimicry.
If you have more time, we have provided two additional sessions. These introduce students to the general idea of biomimicry and how it can inspire human design, and introduces students to some key terms and biomimicry skills they will meet on the NatEnt platform – function, strategy and Nature’s Unifying Patterns. Introducing these now will pay dividends when students work on a biomimicry challenge of their own.
Find below the resource sheets detailed in the Introducing Biomimicry to Students guide.
