PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Building and making things capture children’s imagination. How can you use a lotus flower to make a cosy reading nook? Why would you want to build a floating city? And how can an ant be used to build a huge garbage machine?

Students learn to explore dreams and use these dreams to solve problems. Biomimicry is an exciting way to inspire young children to be creative, curious and to observe the world. By combining these two topics, projects that use a problem solving approach have been designed. The projects are intended to inspire a playful and creative approach towards architecture and design. Children come to understand how animals and plants can be used as a platform upon which ideas and inventions can be developed.
