About this event
*This event is open to current NYU students, staff, or faculty only.
Biomimicry refers to the design of processes or objects that draw close inspiration from nature. Whether we realize it or not, biomimetic design is embedded in the world around us & makes tangible differences to industries like aviation, public transit, materials science, product design, & so much more. Learn about how to implement biomimicry in your design process, how biomimicry has been leveraged in the real world, & participate in a design challenge to plan a smart city that leverages natural processes, systems, & biomechanics.
*This workshop is open to all current NYU student, staff, & faculty & will take place in-person at the NYU MakerSpace located in the Tandon School of Engineering on the downtown Brooklyn campus.*
