Inspiring Nature, Inspired Techno, biomimicry in transports

Biomimetism invites us to reconnect with our innate need to live in harmony with nature. The word comes from “bios” meaning “life” and “mimesis” meaning “to imitate”. This discipline is based on observations of forms, processes and systems to imitate the genius of nature and offer innovative paths to solutions.

When dreamers, creators and researchers observe nature and draw inspiration from it, all kinds of promising concepts, fascinating ideas and inspirational projects come to light.

This is a unique occasion to discover nearly thirty nature specimens and technological objects presented in a dynamic way by ten principles drawn from nature and applied to means of transportation.

A production of the Museum of Ingenuity J. Armand Bombardier in collaboration with the Sherbrooke Museum of Nature and Science and the Granby Zoo with the contributions of Heritage Canada and the J. Armand Bombardier Foundation.
