The association Impariamo dalla Natura was born in September 2015, with the aim of raising awareness and promoting biomimicry and conducting environmental education activities.
From the beginning, the association started to develop environmental education courses in schools. The laboratories offer a scientific and practical demonstration of technological innovations from nature.
The project is aimed at 11 year olds, who are invited to create biomimetic products in groups. The products are shown to the community through a free exhibition where a judging panel chooses the best one.
In 2018, the prize consisted of an excursion to a naturalist place.
For the years 2018 and 2019, the association has obtained a contribution from Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Ascoli Piceno.
In 2018, 291 11 year olds participated in the project.
Activities will continue in 2019: in addition to workshops in schools, the association will organise an exhibition on biomimicry on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci.
The association has also published a children's book on the theme of biomimicry.
