Advanced Ecology is a 5-week; once-a-week educational program tailored to 4th - 8th graders who are ready for more complex science theories.  This season students will be introduced to biomimicry. Biomimicry is the practice of taking inspiration from nature to create solutions to meet human needs in a sustainable way. Over the course of this program, students are introduced to the concept of Biomimicry and study real rocky intertidal animals as inspiration for sustainable design. Students work cooperatively in a team and interact with live animals. Using the information they have learned about coastal animals, students will apply this knowledge in designing their own sustainable research station in small socially distanced groups and presenting it to their peers.
