The future is maybe not a place crowded with insensitive robots and machines… Nature and a bit of poetry can help us shaping a future with sustainable solutions. How can exploring, observing and imitating other living creatures and entities can inspire us ? What can biomimicry teach us ?
Darja Dubravcic is a molecular biology engineer from Zagreb University and she is holding a doctorate degree in “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Life Science” from the prestigious Centre for Research and Interdisciplinary based in Paris. In charge of the biomimicry department at the famous Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) she got a 120k€ grant from AXA for her studies and projets in the field of biomimicry.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
