What you'll learn in this design class:

Don't you love the incredible animal and plant facts that fly around social media? Mosquitoes helped researchers create ouch-less needles to administer vaccines. Glass sponges living on the ocean floor are inspiring the creation of invisible armor. Hawk moths are teaching us to make stable drones that fly flawlessly even in the worst weather. Nature has answers to every design problem we have if we know where to look and how to adapt those designs into our own products.

If you've ever wanted to learn more about nature's designs and apply them yourself to solve a design challenge, this workshop is for you. In this interactive design workshop, you'll learn about the incredible abilities of animals and plants, and then use their genius to inspire a product of your own. You don't need to have any design or science experience. 

The workshop will walk you through fun games and exercises related to design-thinking, and you'll walk away from the workshop inspired, hopeful, and empowered to make a positive difference in the world for all beings who call it home.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
