About This Activity

Nov. 15, 2:00pm-4:00pm - Introduction to Biomimicry  Nov. 22, 2:00pm-4:30pm - Ocean Lab  Nov. 29, 1:00pm-5:00pm - Discovery Voyage, Biomimicry Dec. 6, 2:00pm-4:00pm - Biomimicry Design Challenge  Dec. 13, 2:30pm-5:00pm - Tidepool Expedition @ Pillar Point  Biomimicry is the practice of taking inspiration from nature to create solutions to meet human needs in a sustainable way. Over the course of this program students will be introduced to the concept of Biomimicry, and study real rocky intertidal animals as inspiration for sustainable design. They will also participate in a voyage aboard the R/V Robert G. Brownlee where they will study the adaptations of bay organisms. Using the information they have learned about bay and coastal animals, students will then apply this knowledge by designing their own sustainable research station in small groups and presenting it to their peers. The session will conclude with a trip to the tidepools in Pillar Point, Half Moon Bay, where students will apply their knowledge of Biomimicry to brainstorm creative design solutions inspired by the organisms that they find. *This program has a minimum registration requirement of 10 students. If this minimum is not met, the session may be cancelled.
