About This Activity

Oceanic biomimicry? Oceanic what? Oceanic biomimicry is a fancy way of saying inventions inspired by underwater creatures! Find out why Mercedes-Benz looked to a boxfish to create the design of a car body and why a closer look at how a school of fish maneuvers through tight spaces lead to automotive safety inventions. How did the study of how muscles attach to rocks lead to the development of surgical adhesive? And why is it that even when a sea urchin breaks its spines they remain razor sharp? Investigate these fascinating inquiries with an exploration of live sea creatures, experiment, games and creative play!
