(Re)Connecting with Nature: Exploring Biomimicry in Your Own Backyard!

Ready to learn more about local biomimicry? Register now for BioChi Co-Founder Amy Coffman Phillips' seminar at the Chicago Center for Green Technology April 16th! 

(Re)Connecting with Nature: Exploring Biomimicry in Your Own Backyard!
Biomimicry is the art and science of learning from nature to inspire the design of human forms, processes, and systems. This practice starts by (re)connecting with natural organisms in order to understand what makes them well-adapted to their place, and then translating this information into the language of design and business. In this seminar, we will learn how to explore possibilities by getting outside, making observations, and brainstorming new innovations!
Register now!
