Every Saturday throughout July, The Fleet presents BioInspiration
BioInspiration involves studying designs and processes found in nature and attempting to imitate these systems to solve human problems. We will explore BioInspiration by scientifically analyzing our own experiences and imaginations.
We’ll draw and build models to see what structures, processes and principles emerge and how they might be applied to human pursuits. You might even find a way to create or revolutionize an industry and change the world as we know it. Not a bad pastime for a Saturday afternoon. Activities included with admission.
The Fleet will be open from 10am–6pm daily from Friday, July 5, through Labor Day, Monday, September 2. Tinkering Studio hours will be 12noon–5pm daily.
