Director Sam Stier has been invited by NASA to share his experience bringing bio-inspired innovation into K-12 education at the 2020 Virtual Fall Biocene Workshop, hosted by NASA’s Virtual Interchange for Nature-Inspired Exploration (VINE) group.

NASA’s VINE group’s mission is, “With inspiration from nature and natural systems as its driving framework, V.I.N.E. seeks to help solve NASA’s biggest challenges – in collaboration with experts from academia, industry, and other government agencies.”

NASA and other space agencies have a long and fascinating history of innovation inspired by Nature. You can read more about NASA’s current bio-inspired projects here, involving what we can learn from penguin feathers, dragonflies, seal whiskers and more!
