The Okanagan Science Centre’s latest travelling exhibition will soon invite guests to draw inspiration from nature.

Inspiring Nature, Inspired Techno, Biomimicry and Transport is an exploration of biomimesis – the idea that innovations all around us are inspired by nature.

“Although the word “biomimicry” might not be in everyone’s daily vocabulary, it is visible in our daily lives – such as how the lightweight bones of a bird inspire vehicles’ structure, or how the shape of a kingfisher’s beak was adopted to reduce the noise on high-speed trains,” said Carla-Jean Stokes, exhibition coordinator.

The exhibition will open at the science centre on Jan. 16 and will run until March 28.
