Learning from Nature: Biomimicry Design Challenge

Presented by Museum of Design Atlanta

Nature's been solving problems for eons! What can we learn from the natural world and how can we apply it to help humans? Find out how you can make the world a better place by learning from the original designer herself, Mother Nature. We'll be using biology as a spark of inspiration for our biomimicry design challenge. Join us at the Museum of Design Atlanta for a morning of fun and learning from Nature in this family-based hands-on activity!
Please note that this event has a second session on Saturday, March 19th. See more here.

COVID Considerations

MODA is currently requiring all visitors to wear masks that cover nose and mouth, regardless of vaccination status. We will provide masks onsite for those who need them. Hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the museum and group sizes are deliberately kept small.

As with all ASF events, we ask you to take care of yourself and your community. Stay home if you feel ill, get vaccinated and mask up when in close proximity to others!
