about

?"Fascinating.An appealing resource sure to spark an interest in biomimicry, from casual readers to budding scientists. Recommended for all ­libraries."—School Library Journal, starred review

Did you know that lamps can be powered by glowing bacteria instead of electricity? That gloves designed like gecko feet let people climb straight up glass walls? Or that kids are finding ways to make compostable plastic out of banana peels? Biomimicry, the scientific term for when we learn from and copy nature, is a revolutionary way to look to nature for answers to environmental problems such as climate change.

In Design Like Nature young readers discover innovations and inventions inspired by the environment. Nature runs the entire planet with no waste and no pollution. Can humans learn to do this too? It''s time to step outside and start designing like nature.
