Mission:

We are nurturing a global community of people who look to the natural world for ideas, designs, and strategies for sustainable design. We want to bring biology to the design table. The mission of the Biomimicry Institute is to change the way human designers - architects, engineers, materials scientists, product designers - approach their work.

Results:

We created a first-ever biomimetic chemistry lab lesson plan - showing high school students that we can make building materials - cement - without destructive mining or using excessive amounts of energy, and sequestering carbon! We also 'crowd sourced' a university level Student Design Challenge and attracted 120 teams from around the world to compete. See their amazing design entries here: http://biomimicrydesignchallenge.com/p/2011-winners
