How many of your students know that velcro, helmets and wind farms are all inventions inspired by ideas we see in nature? In this last of our three-part “Inspiring Young Scientists” series, world renowned anatomist Dr. Joy Reidenberg, along with Megan Schuknecht from the Biomimicry Institute, will join us to talk about how to engage our students, and get them excited about science and design innovations that were inspired by nature.

Dr. Reidenberg and Megan will join PBS Digital Innovator All Star Sharon Clark to talk about STEAM education, and highlight exciting resources and models that you can immediately implement in your classroom.

PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one-hour virtual professional learning event.
