From AskNature, “AskNature is the world’s most comprehensive catalog of nature’s solutions to human design challenges. This curated online library features free information on more than 1,800 (and growing!) natural phenomena and hundreds of bio-inspired applications. It was created by the Biomimicry Institute (Links to an external site.).
- Biomimicry Global Design Challenge (Links to an external site.) (#BGDC): We’re going to begin working on the BGDC together beginning in week 3. You have a chance to win $100,000! There are FREE webinars (Links to an external site.) to support your design work too. The BGDC is brought to you by the Biomimicry Institute.
- Encyclopedia of Life (Links to an external site.): EOL.org is the go-to-place for detailed information about biological organisms. From EOL, “Our knowledge of the many life-forms on Earth – of animals, plants, fungi, protists and bacteria – is scattered around the world in books, journals, databases, websites, specimen collections, and in the minds of people everywhere. Imagine what it would mean if this information could be gathered together and made available to everyone – anywhere – at a moment’s notice.” This is what EOL does!
- Zygote Quarterly (Links to an external site.) (ZQ archives): This online magazine is filled with compelling images and articles about biomimetic design. From ZQ, “Zygote Quarterly is a publication devoted exclusively to the nexus of science and design as they meet in the sphere of biomimicry and bio-inspired design.”
- Google Scholar (Links to an external site.): Want to know more about the research that has been conducted to learn more about the organisms and systems that inspire you? Check out Google Scholar, and “Stand on the shoulders of giants.”
- Flickr Photo Sharing Database (Links to an external site.): Check out Flickr’s Creative Commons database for thousands of compelling biological images. From Flickr, “Many Flickr users have chosen to offer their work under a Creative Commons license, and you can browse or search through content under each type of license.”
