Wherever we teach biomimicry, we have the choice of teaching it as a separate subject, or incorporating it as a problem-solving method into any number of different subjects.

"I think that educators at all levels should be exposed to biomimicry in some shape or form as these principles and methods can provide much needed guidelines and valuable material for teaching and learning…"
