Innovation Inspired by Nature

Biomimicry is an emerging science studying nature’s brilliant innovations and emulating its designs and processes to solve human challenges in sustainable ways.  In this completely unique and thought provoking program, professional biomimic, designer, biologist/illustrator at-the-design-table, Nan Woodman shares experiences in learning from 3.8 billion years of genius from the natural world.  Discover what organisms do to be successful and how we might learn from their mind-boggling and elegant strategies.  Take a look at inventions inspired by geckos, kingfishers, humpback whales, termites, beetles, & sharks among others.  Through an introduction of the time-tested principles used by the natural world, learn how life creates conditions conducive for life and how we can become the next generation of creative and innovative thinkers.  Sponsored by Friends of the Lopez Library.  Free programming for our community.
