Biomimicry is an emerging discipline that creates sustainable solutions to human challenges by asking "How would nature do this?". Well-known examples of biomimicry include Velcro®, whale-inspired wind turbines, and the kingfisher-inspired bullet train. Visit the Biomimicry Center to participate in a variety of hands-on lessons that demonstrate self-cleaning properties of lotus leaves, the aerodynamics of the kingfisher bill and the antibiotic action of sharkskin. Learn more about biomimicry in our new NatureMaker space, by exploring unique organisms and becoming inspired by the possibilities for innovation!
