Reviews of other Sparking Children’s Thinkibility products:
Project based learning: Bats, STEAM, Biomimicry
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!”

“Used this for a Kindergarten STEAM club unit and it was a hit!”
Why am I qualified to write these biomimicry resources? I
was 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. I took
part in the Biomimicry Design Challenge in 2021.
