Biomimicry is an approach that seeks sustainable solutions to human problems by modelling on nature’s best ideas. Humans have created massive sustainability problems which could have been avoided through better design inspired by nature’s long-term tested solution found in animals, plants and microbes. Students are challenged to take inspiration from nature to develop new perspectives on design and better ways of creating innovation.
Reconnect’s biomimicry workshop brings to students in the work
• Animal – offering a chance for students to interact with our animals. Finding inspiration from nature through encountering our animals in the workshop.
• Learn how animals use their amazing skills such as ultrasound, infrared and temperature sensors to interact with the environment.
• Learn to use smart sensors to mimic animals’ inherent sensors
• Be inspired and learn how to build your own smart sensors.
