Learn how inspiration from Nature can help students to envision a more sustainable world for all! Biomimicry is the focus of this module, the second in our three-part Designed World series created to help you make STEM learning more interactive. Have your students take learning outside to highlight the NGSS cross-cutting concepts of patterns, form and function, scale, proportion, energy and matter, and systems. This module features a collection of multiple grade level activities and resources that can be used as a stand-alone unit or as background research for the sustainable design challenges featured in Module 3 (available in mid-May). Biomimicry never fails to engage students of all ages and it can provide a great “hook” for learning about adaptations and ecosystems.
Module 1 (Engineering Lemonade) had students examine the designed world in their homes, focusing on how we engineer solutions to our problems. Module 2 takes them outside to seek inspiration from Nature. Module 3 will ask your students to put it all together to design sustainable solutions to the challenges we face on this planet that we all call home.
