Proceedings of the 2nd Annual Biomimicry in Higher Education Webinar

We held our 2nd Annual Biomimicry in Higher Education Webinar on Saturday, January 21, 2012 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST. The number of presenters was shortened this year to include more time for questions. In our electronic publication of the webinar proceedings you can read about innovative courses and tools, learn the myriad ways professors are engaging students in biomimicry education, and view some of the stunning project visuals created by students.
