Project Slice - Biomimicry Designs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Learn PBL by doing PBL in this Project Slice - an immersive experience where you get to experience high-quality PBL first-hand. The Slice will kick off with a provocative entry event on an intriguing design challenge and will culminate with an exhibition, complete with presentations of learning with your products in-hand.

For years, humans have been stealing ideas from plants and animals to create tools, solve problems and enhance their lives. For example, humans used biomimicry with the kangaroo's pouch to inspire the Baby Bjorn - a tool humans use to carry babies.

In Biomimicry Designs, you'll put on your problem-solving cap and settle into your inventor's mindset to ideate and conceptualize a solution, inspired by nature, that helps humans with an everyday problem. Your solution concepts will be publicly exhibited at the end of the day.
