DESIGN LIKE NATURE: BIOMIMICRY FOR A HEALTHY PLANET
Did you know that lamps can be powered by glowing bacteria instead of electricity? That gloves designed like gecko feet let people climb straight up glass walls? Or that kids are finding ways to make compostable plastic out of banana peels? Biomimicry, the scientific term for when we learn from and copy nature, is a revolutionary way to look to nature for answers. In Design Like Nature young readers discover innovations and inventions inspired by the environment. Nature runs the entire planet with no waste and no pollution. Can humans learn to do this too? It's time to step outside and start designing like nature.
Design Like Nature: Biomimicry for a Healthy Planet is part of the Orca Footprints series, which help kids answer their questions about the state of the natural world and environmental topics.
