Nature has inspired many designs and innovations around the world and this week we will use Biomimicry – innovations inspired by nature – to solve real world issues. As the world changes and new issues arise, scientists are beginning to look to Biomimicry for solutions. Like scientists we will work together to create innovative solutions to answer the question, how can we, as engineers, adapt transportation systems for our changing climate? We will dive into different environmental problems and collaboratively research issues, design responses, build prototypes, and create a final presentation on our Biomimetic solutions.
