Many a times such instances might also have sparked inside you a thought process which would have made you come up with an excellent process or strategy to solve your day to day problems. That is exactly what BIO MIMICRY is. It is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. Come, attend an event where your knowledge on nature allied inventions are tested and also get to present your own idea or innovation for a next-gen process. Let’s mimic our way to greatness.
PROBLEM STATEMENT: Identify the various bio mimicry ideas that are already available. Also come up with your own personal bio mimicry idea which has to be presented in front of a judge.
There are three rounds.
Round 1: Basic aptitude test consisting of objective and some subjective questions which test logic, reasoning and analytic prowess.
Consists 2 sections -
Section 1: General analytical and aptitude based questions in objective format.

Video/Photo would be shown and objective questions based on them will be asked.
A set of 2 photos would be shown and bio mimic relationship between each of them has to be described.
A Photo/Video would be shown and whatever bio mimicry ideas that participants get has to be described. This is a bonus question and would be considered in case of ties in scores.
ROUND 3: Participants have to prepare and present their specific bio mimicry ideas in front of a judge. They should also submit a document describing their ideas consisting of name of the idea, brief description, source of inspiration, detailed mechanism of working. The presentation must describe the idea and must explain the following points:
Introduction to problem statement
