Product Description
This is a Word Document version of a project about biomimicry initially published in the March 2015 issue of Science Scope. The article can be found at http://static.nsta.org/files/ss1507_18.pdf . I simply wanted to share the editable worksheet I made to accompany my teaching of this unit. We used it to finish our unit on ecosystem services, since biomimicry/bioinspiration is a valuable ecosystem product.

Standards addressed:
MS-ETS1: Engineering Design
MS-ETS1-1. Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
MS-ETS1-2. Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
MS-ETS1-3. Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
MS-ETS1-4. Develop a model to generate data for iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process such that an optimal design can be achieved.
