TOOLS


How well you scope a challenge, design a concept that emulates nature, and exhibit a biomimicry design process are significant factors during judging. The following resources are provided to help you become familiar with the biomimicry approach and identify a clear climate change-related problem to work on.

Biomimicry Toolbox

The toolbox is your guide to applying nature's lessons to design challenges. This quick-start guide to biomimicry introduces the core concepts and methods that are essential to successfully incorporate insights from nature into design.
