Explore biomimetic design concepts from middle and high school student winners in the Youth Design Challenge.

The Institute’s Youth Design Challenge (YDC) serves as a bridge from core concepts to advanced project-focused learning for students in middle and high school.  The challenge provides a framework for educators of all types to introduce biomimicry as a lens for exploration and problem solving — within and beyond the classroom. It sparks curiosity and ingenuity in middle and high school students, turning learners into makers. The YDC provides students access to the UN Sustainable Design Goals (SDGs) and lets students choose which goal they would like to pursue based on their interest.
