Introducing Biomimicry into Schools

A Pilot Project with Riverwood Primary’s Team BioQuest

As part of our desire to create a biomimicry community of practice within the greater Knysna, Sue has been giving classes at Riverwood Primary on a Friday afternoon to Team BioQuest – a group of learners from Grade 4 to 7.  From card games to treasure hunts, from designing board-games to role-playing, learners have been introduced to this remarkable planet that is our home and the strategies, processes and plans of plants, animals and microbes for thriving on earth.  Now we’re moving on to taking lessons from all these different organisms and systems and seeing how we can apply them at school and home
