View Resource Powers of Ten with the Blue Morpho Butterfly

This lab, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, introduces students to the concepts of scale and magnification using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image of a Blue Morpho butterfly wing. If educators do not have access to an SEM,  images is included with the activity. This lesson will prompt students to think about nanoscale, biomimicry, SEM technology, and ...

View Resource The Shair Group

Chemist Matthew Shair at Harvard University presents his lab's research in the "syntheses of naturally occurring complex molecules that challenge the state-of-the-art of organic synthesis" which allows the team to "explore new areas of organic chemistry, especially with respect to reactivity and selectivity." The page presents a description of current research projects, and all publications...

View Resource Bio-Inspired Engineering of Exploration Systems

A NASA technology brief from May 2003 discusses efforts to combine characteristics of several different species into one artificial creation to optimally serve the purposes of a mission. There is also a very interesting graph which illustrates three different types of mobility used in space craft inspired by insects and birds.

View Resource Biomimetics: Biologically-Inspired Technologies

Biomimetics, the mimicry of biological systems in engineering and technology, is the focus of work being done at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Here, visitors will find information about biomimetics technologies, publications, announcements, and links.

View Resource Biologically-Inspired Computing Approaches To Cognitive Systems

An excellent background of some of the most significant developments in artificial life and intelligence is given in a 56-page paper from Hewlett-Packard Laboratories. The author discusses many different issues, including neural networks and software agents, and concludes by alluding to future application areas.
