Support the YDC


The only way to ensure that the innovators of tomorrow will ask nature for sustainable solutions is to teach them how to do so today.

The Biomimicry Youth Design Challenge teaches kids how to use nature as a model, mentor, and measurement tool for sustainability, and to create similar solutions to solve human design challenges.

We are a non-profit, and only because of donor and grant support are we able to make this program completely free for all teachers and students that want to participate. 

You help us ensure that students everywhere can be inspired by nature and learn how to be a changemaker. 

Donations help us:

  • Create and maintain curriculum that introduces students to nature-inspired design.

  • Develop educational tools and resources to help educators bring biomimicry into the classroom.

  • Provide professional development and training opportunities for teachers.

Help us bring biomimicry into the classroom by making a gift to the Institute today.
