June 16 @ 9:00 am - June 18 @ 3:00 pm

Engineering workshop

Sam Stier, Director of the Center for Learning with Nature, will teach you how to use his award-winning Engineering Inspired by Nature curriculum.

After the workshop, you and your students can:

  • Use scanning electron micrographs to understand the internal architecture and performance of materials;
  • explore materials science and structural engineering through the example of schoolyard trees;
  • redesign common objects to optimize material use, based on how bones grow;
  • make cement in a process inspired by coral reefs, without quarries and greenhouse gases;
  • and design and construct a solar cell inspired by leaves.
