Inspired by Nature: Engineering and Design
All programs last two hours unless noted otherwise in the program description below.
The Hitchcock Center’s new Living Building is a teaching tool for sustainability. Students will learn about how natural systems can inform human innovation as they explore the building’s water, waste and energy systems. They will participate in a design challenge to solve a human problem in a way that mimics nature’s solutions. This is an indoor field trip and can take place year round.
