Did you know that a medicine used to treat Type 2 Diabetes was inspired by the saliva of a Gila Monster, and camouflage clothing was inspired by tigers?  At this workshop, you will be amazed to learn how scientists, designers, architects, and many others are inspired by nature to solve human problems.   This is called biomimicry!  Through hands-on and minds-on activities, you will learn ways to inspire your students to solve human problems through the lens of nature.  You will leave this workshop with a $50 STEMAZing kit with materials that will allow you to begin these biomimicry activities on Monday morning.

This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Workshop Series. The STEMAZing Project’s philosophy on teacher professional development is simple: It must be hands-on and engaging – putting the educators in the seat of the students to experience STEM lessons firsthand. It must provide the educators with the equipment and supplies they need to implement the lessons and activities in their classrooms the next day if they choose. It must be facilitated by master educators who have themselves been in the classroom.
