Bionics and Environment Curriculum Module

Science Communication
Event Date | 2023/05/27 - 2023/05/28 Address |

The project team led by the principal investigator plans to promote science popularization activities on bionics (ecological nanotechnology) and environmental education by using the \Bionics and Environment Curriculum Module\ (developed and awarded since 2008). \Bionics and Environment,\ also known as \Ecological Nanotechnology and Environment,\ is defined as understanding the ecological phenomena that contain nanoscale characteristics in the environment, explaining the principles of nanoscale characteristics, connecting them to laboratory and daily life applications, and combining environmental education with various related aspects to encourage innovation and creativity in bionic design. During teaching, local scenic spots and bionics can be combined to lead learners to understand emerging technologies from familiar and friendly local ecological environments, while appreciating the irreplaceability of natural ecology. Furthermore, high-tech energy-saving and resource-saving can be used to achieve the goal of ecological education to \sustain the environment.\

5/27 Event DIY:
1. Understand biomimicry and nanotechnology: Introduce the concepts of
biomimicry and nanotechnology to understand the relationship between ecological
characteristics and biomimicry applications and observe micro-scale appearance
through a mobile phone microscope.
2. Nano-alloys nanostructure and solidity: Understand that fewer gaps mean a solid
structure, connect with the wisdom of metallurgy from a hundred years ago, and
learn the impact of dispersion on solidity.
3. Nanocarbon family: Make nanocarbon black, observe the properties of
nanostructures on water molecules, assemble graphene and buckyballs, explore the
correlation, analyze three-dimensional and planar compositions, and understand
biomimicry properties and technological applications.
4. Crystal vinegar and magical hot water: Understand the simulated stalactite
phenomenon, explain the concepts of supersaturated solution and supersaturated
sodium acetate, observe the recrystallization phenomenon, make a hot-ice link
exothermic reaction, and reflect on life applications.
5/28 Event DIY:
1. Shell effect: Introduce two small experiments, the Mohs hardness challenge, and
shell structure analysis. Understand that other ingredients will cause different
hardness and the importance of protein to the shell structure. Then, related
biomimicry applications are derived from the shell structure.
2. Lotus leaf effect: Understand the lotus leaf effect, make hydrophobic props, and
introduce daily life applications that utilize the lotus leaf effect, such as pots, bowls,
or building materials.
3. Nanocarbon spheres: Introduce the nanostructures of fullerene, graphene, and
carbon nanotubes, including their geometric structures and composition methods.
Explain the characteristics of their structures and examples of their relevance to life
and biomimicry. The correlation is used to verify the properties of the nanostructure.
