This lesson provides a framework to help students finalize and share the results of their Biomimicry Challenge project. Students develop a concise description to promote their design concept, plan and record a video pitch, and create a visual presentation to detail their design solution. If applicable, students also prepare their final design proposals to enter the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge (BDGC) competition.

Co-authored by the Biomimicry Institute.

Key objectives for students
Describe the design solution using verbal, written, and visual communication tools.
Argue persuasively for their design solution.
Articulate how their design solution was inspired by nature.
