Two-part course: Saturday and Sunday, March 23 and 24 from 2:00pm – 5:00pm

Ever wonder what makes a peacock’s feathers so vibrant? Or how ants can communicate along complex scent trails to find and distribute food? How do honeybees use swarm logic to regulate the internal hive temperature? And why do trees and other plants grow in a similar and repeating patterns?

These questions encompass the underlying inquiry and ethos of biomimicry, looking to nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies to help solve our human challenges.

Don’t worry, no prior knowledge of biomimicry, science, design or nature is required. All age levels welcome.
