Introduction to Biomimicry Foundational Course Now Live

Biomimicry 3.8 is excited to announce the official release of our first online course in the Foundations of Biomimicry series, “Introduction to Biomimicry.” This interactive online course has been specifically developed for professionals, students, and others who have seen a talk or read an article, or even just discovered biomimicry and who want to take the first step in understanding more about the meme in order to foster its spread or even to develop their own  practice in biomimicry. This course will be followed in 2013 by an Introduction to Biomimicry Thinking and an Introduction to Life’s Principles to complete the Foundations of Biomimicry series.

Introduction to Biomimicry  

The course is the definitive online introduction to the world of biomimicry, an immersive experience featuring Dr. Dayna Baumeister, Keystone and Co-founder of Biomimicry 3.8, as your instructor, and nature as your mentor.

The self-paced course will guide you through:

• the core biomimicry philosophy
• key elements of biomimicry
• what makes a biomimicry case study
• a review of the process of integrating biology into design, known as Biomimicry Thinking
• an introduction to Life’s Principles
• your next steps for connecting with nature and other practitioners.

Through visually engaging audio, video, photos, and illustrations, Dayna and other practicing biomimics provide in-depth analysis of real world examples of biomimicry, and offer tips on how to put biomimicry tools to work in most any discipline. Through this course, you will gain a fresh new perspective on how the world around you can, does, and should work.

The early feedback is coming in that this is an incredible amount of inspiration and things you will want to share with others packed into about two hours. Here’s one participant’s feedback:

” I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how blown-away I am by the Introduction to Biomimicry foundational course.  You’ve produced an amazing teaching tool that not only presents a TON of material, but does so in an intuitive and aesthetically pleasing fashion.  As one who regularly strives to expand and develop my own internal encyclopedia, I found the course not only clear and concise, but a perfect tool for understanding the rudiments; something I try to do in every one of my endeavors so as not to lose sight of my feet.

I’ve even been sharing it with my 10 year old and he loves it — the next (and hopefully expanded) generation of mimics!”

The price for this course is $99 USD. In just a few minutes time you can be logged in and learning about biomimicry from Biomimicry 3.8 and Dr. Dayna Baumeister, one of the very few true experts on the subject in the world. Click here to begin your biomimicry learning journey today.
