COMPOUND EYES: A BIO-INSPIRED CONCEPT FOR THE EDUCATIONAL FIELD
Keywords:Creative Learning, Environmental Sciences., teaching, Rivers, Biomimicry
Bioinspired by animals, we propose a creative and innovative method for the educational field, especially for Science Teaching. We question the hierarchies and knowledge that place nature and subjects as objects. Based on the way ants see, we propose the concept of compound eyes to promote imagery and sensory dialogues with ecosystems. In this essay, we imagine water as a fluid and transitory element, in constant transformation and movement. Through biomimicry we suggest a set of didactic activities to be applied in formal and non-formal education. We conclude that Brazilian biodiversity still has countless paths, guidelines and teachings that can stimulate us to creative experiences, thus expanding our imaginations.
