The Biomimicry Youth Design Challenge (YDC) departs in a unique and fascinating way from other engineering design projects by introducing nature's organisms and processes as inspiration for novel solutions. Join us for a virtual conversation to explore resources from the Instructional Storyline sections MATCH and INNOVATE. These lessons help students identify inspiring biological models and apply innovative ideas from them in a design solution. We will also consider ways your student teams can work safely in-person or virtually to create, test, and refine models of their design.
All educators and coaches are encouraged to attend no matter where you are in the YDC planning and teaching process. If you would like to review a recording from our first webinar, which introduced the YDC Instructional Storyline, you can access it here.
