Introduction to Biomimicry
(Course will be offered through the UMass Boston University College)
Biomimicry is an innovation method that seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature's time-tested patterns and strategies, e.g., a solar cell inspired by a leaf. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies by learning from and ‘listening to’ nature that has been evolving and accumulating wisdom for 3.8 billion years. Biomimicry is inspired by nature to study the structure and function of biological materials for the purpose of analogous synthetic design and manufacturing. It is an abstraction from nature into a sustainable technical object, process and/or life cycle.
