Resource Description
BIOMIMICRY DISPLAY SET. This fascinating series of 12 STEM-related displays reinforces the phrase "nature knows best!" Each 5" x 6" glass-topped display features an example of an important product that was inspired by careful observation of a plant or animal in nature. Some of these discoveries were the result of calculated research efforts while others were more or less stumbled upon by mistake. What these displays show is that nature expresses the basic principles of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) everywhere. One can be sure that there are many hundreds of new STEM discoveries awaiting the keen eyes of observers of nature. The 12 displays include self-cleaning tile (beading of water on snail shells), strong yet lightweight building materials (honeycomb patterns), synthetic thermal insulation (down feathers), hook and loop fasteners like Velcro® (burdock seeds), hard composites (mother of pearl), reflective coloration (peacock feathers), Fastskin® fabric and boat hull coatings (shark skin studies), waterproof glues (beach mussels), strong artificial fabrics and fibers (silkworms), camouflage principles (caddisfly larvae, sphinx moths), reactive fabrics (pine cones response to humidity), and strong structural weaves ( glass sponges). #T-22164, set of 12 displays.
