STEM Careers Night


Careers Night

STEM Careers Night introduces students to professionals in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Experts share their real-world experiences and advice with participants to help them discover potential careers.

“Instead of asking how you can choose a career that will ensure you are ‘future ready’, ask if the future is ready for you – what does the world need, and how can you co-create the future you choose?”

STEM Careers Night


“I enjoyed the information given about college paths/career diversity.”

Summerville High Senior

“I just wanted to let you know that I thought the meeting was a great success. My grandson, Alexander, attended all the engineering breakouts. He really wants to get into robotics, and it seems like this was very encouraging for him. Thanks to you and all who made this possible; I hope it continues to be successful.”

Grandfather of 7th grade student

“Great speakers last night, I was really impressed by a few of them. If any kid had an ounce of STEM interest, they certainly walked away motivated.”

Gold Rush Charter School



The Biomimicry Institute was founded in 2006 by Janine Benyus and Bryony Schwan to share nature’s design lessons with the people who design and make our world. We began by working directly with educators from K-12, university, and non-formal (museums, zoos, aquariums) environments to naturalize biomimicry in the educational system and ensure the next generation of changemakers had the tools to integrate biomimicry in their careers. The Biomimicry Institute aims to naturalize biomimicry in the culture by promoting the transfer of ideas, designs, and strategies from biology to sustainable systems design. We envision a world where people view nature not as a warehouse of goods but as a storehouse of knowledge and inspiration for regenerative solutions.

Youth Education Vision

Students will experience the power of biomimicry as an intersection that feeds the mind and the soul through academic and emotional connections as they engage with the natural world. Students will be prepared to face future challenges with intellect, understanding, and compassion.
