  1. Biomimicry and the Built Environment Introduction to Biomimicry for Middle School

  2. Where do ideas come from?

  3. Biomimicry • Bio – life • Mimicry – to copy or emulate

  4. Biomimicry is learning from nature how to solve human challenges and improve our world.

  5. Learning from Nature’s Genius: A Step-by-Step Guide • What do you want your solution to do?

  6. Learning from Nature’s Genius: A Step-by-Step Guide • What do you want your solution to do? • Biologize the question.

  7. Learning from Nature’s Genius: A Step-by-Step Guide • What do you want your solution to do? • Biologize the question. • Find the best natural models.

  8. Learning from Nature’s Genius: A Step-by-Step Guide • What do you want your solution to do? • Biologize the question. • Find the best natural models. • think about habitats

  9. Learning from Nature’s Genius: A Step-by-Step Guide • What do you want your solution to do? • Biologize the question. • Find the best natural models. • think about habitats • lots of ways to find information

  10. Learning from Nature’s Genius: A Step-by-Step Guide • What do you want your solution to do? • Biologize the question. • Find the best natural models. • think about habitats • lots of ways to find information • look for champions

  11. So, what does this mean to YOU?

  12. T-shirt that wicks sweat like a horned lizard Vitamins based on the diet of forest apes Fasteners that stick like burrs Shoe soles that grip like a mountain goat Underwear that breathe like stomates of plants

  13. Clothing colored without dyes like a butterfly or a peacock

  14. Sandwich bags that biodegrade like tethers of blue mussel and zip closed like a feather

  15. Computers as fast as neurons Energy the way electric eels or leaves make it

  16. Systems interconnected like trees in a old-growth forest

  17. What possibilities can you imagine? What creatures will inspire you?

  18. Can YOU look to nature for inspiration?

  19. Here are Some Ways to Start • Take a Hike! • Sit quietly outside and OBSERVE • Ask questions in Biology class • Stay in School • Read books about the natural world • Do research on your favorite creature and all its cool functions, for yourself! • Go to college and study Biology and Design

  20. Never stop asking Why or How It’s your future.
