Learning how to design a strong and flexible building? Helping to create a bottle that does not contribute to the problem of plastics soup? BioLearn is an educational approach in which pupils learn how to use nature as a source of inspiration for different design challenges. Designs that are inspiring and sustainable.
The main goal of BioLearn is to provide teaching materials and training on the topic of Bio-Inspired Learning for youth STEM educators across the European Union.
The challenge we offer
The beak of a Kingfisher as a source of inspiration for the Shinkansen train that does not create noise and the fins of a humpback whale for creating more efficiënt blades for a wind turbine....
BioLearn challenges traditional assumptions about how things are made and how entire economies are managed. Our materials are created around re-thinking the future, a future that is already happening because many companies are fascinated by nature and are innovative enough to create ‘bio-inspired’ design.
And this is only the beginning of an innovative exploration.....
Rich pool of educational materials
BioLearn introduces a new way of learning and offers materials will help young people think about what sort of future they would like to live in and it help teachers to offer challenging education within the framework of the school curriculum. Our target group is 12 – 16 years.
