- Did you research multiple biological strategies before identifying the most relevant strategies for your design? How did you determine and prioritize these strategies?
- Did you effectively identify relevant biological strategies applicable to your design challenge?
- How well do you demonstrate and document an understanding of your chosen function(s) and biological strategies?
- How well do you show a clear connection between a biological mechanism, process, pattern, or system, and how the design concept submitted emulated that natural model or models?
- How well do you define your specific challenge/problem?
- How well do you understand the context, design criteria, and constraints (such as materials, timing, resources and policies) of the challenge you decided to work on?
- How relevant is your problem statement to the challenge design brief?
- How well do you understand and address the underlying problems you aim to solve?
- Have you articulated and defined the sustainability aspects of your problem?
- What are the benefits/impacts that your design concept has on your specific challenge/problem?
- How novel is your innovation and/or biological inspiration?
- If something like your design concept has already been proposed, is your solution more sustainable than previous solutions? Does it offer significant advantages or greater depth to the emulation?
SOCIAL & ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS
- Will adoption of your design lead to significant social, cultural, and/or environmental wins?
- Have you provided evidence of how your design concept will address sustainability concerns?
- How have you applied Nature’s Unifying Patterns or Life’s Principles in your design?
COMMUNICATION & PRESENTATION
- Are your submission materials informative, well-organized, complete, and clear?
- Do your submission materials provide a succinct overall description of your problem statement, biomimicry process and your solution?
- Have you properly cited all data, references and sources, including experts consulted?
- Did you use compelling, high quality visuals (photos, illustrations, charts/diagrams, etc.) to support explanations?
- Have you sought out experts and mentors as needed?
- Is your team interdisciplinary and does it have the right skills to address the specific challenge selected?
- Is your team clearly motivated to continue working on this solution beyond the design concept stage?
- Do you have the key people (team members, advisors) and core capabilities (interdisciplinary backgrounds/expertise) you need to move on to the next phase of the competition? If not, are you seeking outside assistance to fill those gaps?
- Has your team developed a prototype?
- Has your team conducted sufficient interviews with the stakeholders and potential users of your innovation?
