How we can innovate like nature
Innovation has been going on for 4 billion years, so we’d be crazy not to take inspiration from the ultimate testbed - Earth. This is biomimicry, and in this course we’ll explore what that means, how it’s being applied, and what the possibilities are. When it comes to problems in design, medicine, engineering and everything in between, nature so often has the answers. We just need to ask.
