Bionic Flower

The Bionic flower is an experiment set inspired by the plant world.

It opens and closes its petals in response to external influences such as being approached or exposed to light. These mechanisms of action are simulated using sensors and actuators and can be easily learned by students in the classroom.

The bio-inspired design transfers the principles of the plant world to technology based on scientific and technical questions. This helps to round out the topics taught in the curriculum in STEM training.

Topics Covered

  • Exploring the concepts of bionics
  • Understanding and applying biological phenomena
  • Simple control via mobile devices
  • Gaining initial programming experience
  • Helping girls get more interested in technical topics
  • Encouraging creativity through play
