Biomimicry and Science! Hands-on Curriculum for 7-12th Grade
Limited Capacity seats available

Join EcoRise staff, AISD science specialists, and AISD science teachers to explore a hands-on, TEKS-aligned biomimicry curriculum designed through a partnership between EcoRise, The Biomimicry Institute, and Austin ISD. Biomimicry and Science: Applying Nature’s Strategies is a suite of lessons that introduce students to eco-literacy and design innovation concepts through project-based learning and real-world applications. These lessons can be used to teach and reinforce core content in chemistry, physics, and biology, using striking examples from nature and bio-inspired design as a framework to capture student interest. We will review the lessons that are available to all AISD science teachers, experience a few lessons first-hand, and hear from AISD teachers who have used the lessons in their own classrooms.
