Project based learning: Bats, STEAM, Biomimicry

This product is absolutely the favorite one I have purchased all fall! I love the information that is provided about bats – just enough to intrigue and encourage higher level thinking. There are graphic organizers, worksheets, and subtle suggestions to help young learners perform at their best! And best of all, it stretches their creativity! Thanks for such an amazing resource!”

Why am I qualified to write these biomimicry resources? I am a member of BEN – Biomimicry Education Network – and a curator of educational resources at BEN. I am the author of the book Biomimicry with Theo & Tuva: Nature spotting inspires wild ideas. In 2015, I completed a course in Biomimicry: A Sustainable Design Methodology at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
