“Biomimicry: Emulating Nature's Genius

Biomimicry provides an important lens for innovation. By looking at and applying nature's strategies to innovation, we can take the best of 3.8 billion years of time tested research and development and apply it to design of products, systems and processes.

Introducing biomimicry thinking to the creative process provides a framework for sustainability. By emulating the overarching principles that nature uses to create conditions conducive to life, as well as looking for specific methodologies, we can come up with solutions to our biggest challenges.

This course teaches you about observation, function and assimilation, as well as the principles in which nature operates. Biomimicry thinking offers an exciting new lens in which to view the world.
