The Minneapolis College of Art and Design’s Master of Arts in Sustainable Design program is partnering with Canvas.net to offer the 4-week online course Biomimicry: A Sustainable Design Methodology, starting March 25th.
Bioversum, in cooperation with European Biomimicry Alliance (EBA) and designforum Vorarlberg presents the Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature Summer Workshop.
Finding clever, hands-on lessons and activities in today’s STEM classrooms can be challenging for any topic, particularly sustainability. That’s why biomimicry can make all the difference in the world.
Are you looking for a way to inspire the next generation of world-builders – engineers, designers, research scientists, chemists, architects, city planners, and educators?
Biomimicry is a rapidly growing discipline that offers teachers a compelling way to engage students of all ages and crosses the boundaries traditionally found in education. It supports the goals of the New York State Science Learning Standards, the Common Core Learning Standards, and STEAM, and offers solution-based thinking while inspiring young people with a sense of the possible. It links design (arts) and science, and offers a model of relevancy because it will be part of many of the jobs of the future. Biomimicry also provides a plethora of literature for linking ELA to science and the Reading Standards for Literature.
