Nature’s Design: Using Biomimicry to Prevent Surface Icing

This lesson plans uses student investigation to introduce self-cleaning and water repellant manufactured and natural products.  Students will be introduced to the micro- and nanostructure of such products and be introduced to the world of biomimicry through teacher facilitated instruction.  Following the investigation of these products, their structure, and the role of biomimicry in modern science students will complete a research project in which they attempt to solve a “real world” problem using their knowledge of biomimicry and nanoscience.
