The Biodesign Challenge is an interdisciplinary course that brings together students from Art, Engineering, and Biology to create innovative solutions for problems facing the environment and society while using the natural world as inspiration. The team is challenged with designing a revolutionary eco-friendly technology and simultaneously critiquing the potential impact of their creation in a world that is increasingly hostile to nature. The students will present work-in-progress and highlight the process of collaboration and experimentation at the heart of the class. Following the completion of the course, our team will have the opportunity to present their work at the Biodesign Summit at the Museum of Modern Art and the Parsons School of Design, along with competing students from 46 universities and six continents.
