An engaging summer class experience that challenges students to use design thinking and give shape to a sustainable future.

Cost: $150  |  Grades: High School Students

June 20 – July 8

The Challenge:

  • How do we re-purpose our cities for efficiency and sustainability?
  • How do we rebuild urban environments to have minimal impact on natural ecosystems?
  • How can we re-imagine cities as ecosystems that mimic the Earth?

In this class, you will study how Earth’s systems interact, and how humans are incorporating our understanding of biology into our built environments through biomimicry.
