Proceedings: Biomimicry in Higher Education Webinar, 2011


In late January 2011, we hosted our first Biomimicry in Higher Education Webinar. In our electronic publication of the webinar proceedings, you can read about topics ranging from how to integrate biomimicry into industrial design and architecture courses, to how biomimicry can inform interior design and ecosystem restoration projects, to how biomimicry is being taught to biology, engineering, and design students.
