Think & Drink: Biomimicry says
Got a problem? Ask nature.

Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks solutions to human challenges by using nature — its patterns, systems and strategies — as inspiration. We've brought together the top minds in this emerging field for a #ThinkandDrink like no other!

Get to know our friends at Great Lakes Biomimicry, the driving force behind Northeast Ohio's biomimicry boom. Test how well you know Life's Principles, the set of strategies that all living organisms use to survive. Learn about the Biomimicry Research Innovation Center at The University of Akron and meet some of its Ph.D. Biomimicry Fellows. Start a conversation with Emily Kennedy, CEO of Hedgemon, LLC, a Cleveland-based startup developing hedgehog-inspired impact protection technology. Talk with Stephen Howe, a Biomimicry Fellow who is working to understand how aquatic organisms move efficiently through fluids. Check out a robotic snake and chat with its creator — the University of Akron's Dr. Henry Astley, an expert in the biomechanics of animal locomotion. And MORE!
