Bats | NGSS STEAM Biomimicry Project Based Learning Digital Activities:

Looking for something exciting for a project based learning unit? This unit focuses on the study of bats. This is a lesson plan that will guide you through the process of using biomimicry and steam activities to inspire students to ask questions, study bats and use creative thinking to explore ideas.

These activities are fun and engaging.

Feel inspired, Be Creative and Make Change.

Bats are fascinating creatures that sometimes have a bad reputation. Here they provide inspiration for new ideas - the focus is on medical applications.

This resource has been prepared so that your students can use it on digital devices. I have selected suitable slides for you, you need to insert text boxes and you can also add instructions for your students.

"Used this for a Kindergarten STEAM club unit and it was a hit!"

Why am I qualified to write these biomimicry resources? I am a member of BEN - Biomimicry Education Network - and a curator of educational resources at BEN. I am the author of the book Biomimicry with Theo & Tuva: Nature spotting inspires wild ideas. In 2015, I completed a course in Biomimicry: A Sustainable Design Methodology at Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
