“Nature’s Blueprints” is a family-friendly show featuring interactive learning stations that explore ways we can be inspired by nature’s incredibly resourceful designs. Families will enjoy hands-on stations about natural emulation in art and design such as: how burrs from a forest informed velcro, the shape of a beetle’s teeth helped an inventor create a more efficient chainsaw, bird and bat wing shapes aided the early flight tests, spiderwebs have inspired suspension bridges, and more. Visit this show or attend one of our weekend STEAM workshops to discover how art, design, and environmental science can lead to extraordinary inventions that improve our lives.
