Sam Stier, Director of Youth Education for the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute, explains the importance of biomimicry in education.
"Biomimicry is a compelling context for what teachers have to teach. It connects what students learn in classrooms —not just to the real world, to cutting edge technologies, and careers— but also to what students care about on the inside. Meaningful work, a healthy environment, a sustainable world. Biomimicry gives these kids such a sense of opportunity and hope."
