Biomimicry and What it Means for Innovation

Thursday, November 21, 4:00 – 6:00 PM at the Fairbanks Museum, part of the NEK Entrepreneur Week.

What does slug mucus have to do with surgical practices? Let’s reconnect with nature to find out. Many times people look to nature to see how to figure out the way things work and how to copy it.

We’ll explore how young students are encouraged to study the world around them for healthy and sustainable answers to solving everyday problems. Hands-on demos with mushrooms, burdock and milkweed and their alternate uses will be on display in the STEM Lab. What problem would you solve with the aid of nature?  For more information on all the NEK Entrepreneur events, go to: 

The program is free and open to the public from 4-6pm on Thursday the 21st at the Fairbanks Museum & Planetarium’s STEM Lab, 73 Prospect Street
