Virtual Design Lab projects poised to make positive change

From developing an undergrad class to inspire biomimicry in business to creating an affordable prosthetic hand design that can be made from a 3D printer, we’re proud of the work our students are doing to bring biomimicry-based solutions to the world through the Biomimicry Center at Arizona State University.

Here’s a look at several Virtual Design Lab projects being completed by the (almost) Certified Biomimicry Professional Class of 2015. The cohort of 20 will travel to Africa in November for a final in-person session before they graduate. The BPros—spread across the world—will have earned a Master’s of Science in biomimicry from ASU and will have completed Biomimicry 3.8′s elite BPro in-person trainings.

With the 2015 class of biomimics set to graduate in this fall, we’re now accepting applications for the next class of innovators looking to be inspired by nature as they look to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems. Interested students must apply before Nov. 15 for the Spring of 2016 Master’s of Science in Biomimicry program at ASU.

Application for the BPro 2016-17 cohort is open only to applicants who have successfully been admitted to the MS program through ASU Online in Fall of 2015 or Spring of 2016. Final BPro cohort selection occurs in Spring of 2016. Our next BPro cohort won’t be selected until 2018.
