Excellent course with well defined and applied biomimicry concepts, tools, and principles by creating novel biomimetic designs.

Differentiated between nature’s design principles, strategies, functions, and patterns to apply them to human-made designs.

Observed nature and conducted research to learn from nature through real-world, outdoor observations.

Employed the biological solutions database AskNature.org to serve as a research tool for design challenges.
