We are the Biomimicry Club at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. As environmentalism has become the theme of the future, we strive to promote Biomimicry as the key method of achieving true sustainability. Our mission is to inspire other students and members of the community to look at nature as a teacher and see its systems as examples for improving human processes.

MEET THE OFFICERS
Originally from Laguna Beach, California, I am now a 5th year at Cal Poly studying Mechanical Engineering and Biology. For me, Biomimicry represents the perfect combination of my two favorite subjects: technology and nature. Although everything within this field completely captivates me, I am currently focusing on biomimetic applications within mechatronics, otherwise known as bionics. I have also done work researching algae biomass for fuel production. I am always looking for new projects to either participate in or support, and I’m so excited to be a part of the future of innovation with Biomimicry at its forefront!
Hi everyone! I’m Katie Johnson, a 4th year studying Materials Engineering. Originally from Lake Tahoe, nature is in my DNA and technology is increasingly so. I have an absolute passion for biomimicry and it’s what I hope to base my career on. Previously, I have worked with Dr. Harding researching and testing the properties of cactus spines. Let’s look at the great ideas that already exist in world around us and build creative and innovative ideas for now and the future!
My name is Maggie and I am a senior studying Mechanical Engineering. My passions are art, space, manufacturing, being outside and BIOMIMICRY of course! The reason I fell in love with the idea of biomimicry is because of my love for nature. I feel a strong connection with the outdoors and spend as much time as I can outside. I love to ski, hike, run, camp, swim, crawl through caves, jump from cliffs, play tennis, and just bask in the sun. Nature has given me the unique combination of adrenaline and health. I feel completely inspired by the things I see outside.
I had my first internship last summer and I gained some extremely valuable experiences. I am excited about what the future holds and plan to pursue a career that involves biomimicry as a way to combine my love for the natural world and the degree I am pursuing.
My name is Lily and I am a second year studying biomedical engineering. I’m originally from Eugene, Oregon and I love attending school here in SLO. I enjoy hiking, spending time at the beach, eating food, doing Sudoku’s, playing the cello and coming up with new ideas for our next biomimicry project. Biomimicry was the reason why I decided to pursue biomedical engineering, and continues to be something I am both very interested in and very passionate about.
