After an exciting first day, our summit participants began day two with more than a bang! Visiting the ecological preserve to geocache and discover the many aspects of biomimicry was surely an adventure for everyone. Here are some of our students in the act.

Biomimicry is the process by which we emulate nature in order to better the human world. One great example of biomimicry we had the opportunity to discuss during our geo-cash yesterday was the salamander's ability to regenerate its limbs. Simulating processes similar to the salamanders to do research on stem cells is an excellent use of this process.
