"The more our world functions like the natural world, the more likely we are to endure on this home that is ours, but not ours alone."

We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2011 - 2012 Biomimicry Youth Challenge!

Students and teachers from public and private schools, afterschool and out-of-school clubs, and home schools looked to nature for inspiration, and the results are themselves inspiring! This year, we received 34 entries from the US, the UK, and France, and we were impressed by the creativity and biomimetic thinking at all levels.
