Are you curious about investigating how nature engineers itself? How engineers copy the shapes present in nature (“biomimetics”)? This Freshman Seminar investigates why comparable shapes happen in so many pure issues and the way physics adjustments the form of nature. Why are issues in nature formed the way in which they’re? How do birds fly? Why do hen nests look the way in which they do? How do woodpeckers peck? Why can’t bushes develop taller than they’re? Why is grass skinny and hole? What’s the wooden science behind musical devices? Questions akin to these are the topic of biomimetic analysis and so they have been the main target of investigation on this course for the previous three years.
