For many of us, our eyes widened to nature’s genius and the possibility, power, and promise of biomimicry when we first watched Janine take the TED stage. To date, an estimated more than 700,000 people have shared the experience. If you have not seen it, please enjoy. If you have, we are certain you will enjoy it again. In either case, we hope it inspires you to spread the word (“biomimicry”) and perhaps even begin your own learning journey.
