In the first lecture of this two-part series, we have the opportunity to hear from University of Montana's Dr. Jakki Mohr as she discusses biomimicry and its role in solving design problems. Biomimicry is the practice of learning from the processes in nature in order to innovate and find solutions in everyday applications. Mohr will also share the challenges companies face in seeking creative inspiration from nature and the keys to success. Be prepared to be awed and inspired!
