Biomimicry – Nature Inspired Design

Examine different materials and building techniques used by animals and insects and then try your hand at a few – such as recycled paper and woven materials. Weather permitting, we will go outside and each student will build a structure in their designated area using only the materials they can find within arm’s reach. Site specific sculptures will be toured and photographed for posterity – but not brought home.

Outreach programs are designed for students in grades 3-12. The cost of one 60 minute program is $160, but multiple programs are offered at a discounted rate – $140 for each additional program.

Requests for program information or scheduling should be directed to Juliette Casselman at or at 401-473-9174.
