Downloadable science kits include design challenge for middle schoolers
When it’s 115 degrees outside, wolves pant, tortoises burrow underground and elephants flap their ears.
All of those adaptations keep animals cool in desert climates and can inspire sustainable innovations for humans. That approach — looking to nature for solutions — is called biomimicry.
The Biomimicry Center at Arizona State University is now offering a way for teachers to introduce these concepts to middle schoolers. The center has created BioConnect educational kits to be used in the classroom and has put all the resources from the kit online for any educator to use.
