Biomimetic
Proposal

Term Paper

Term Paper

The term paper

is an

individual

requirement where you will

propose your
own biomimetic technology or concept.


These are the characteristics of the biomimetics proposal:


The

technology or concept

must not yet be existing.

1.
However, you will still need a basis of the concept. This includes existing
products or research. Your concept may be an improvement or
enhancement of current research, inventions, or products.

2.
The project will be passed on the date of the FINALS

3.
This is an individual project

4.
This will compose 10% of your grade


Term paper

The term paper is different from the Oral Group Reporting since the
reporting is about topics and concepts that are already existing, while the
Special Project is about proposing your own biomimetic concept that is
still nonexistent or futuristic.

Your proposal should follow the following formats:

1.
Calibri/Tahoma/TNR/Arial/Verdana/Garamond font size 10 for body text.

2.
Short bond paper

3.
1 inch margin on all sides.

4.
Minimum of three pages.
