I am a Bionic Flower
A Fusion of Art, Technology and Education
In cooperation with Festo SE, we have created a bionic education concept for young people intending to get them excited about biologically inspired engineering.
STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
Artificial yet natural! I am a bionic flower and I envision education! I am reacting towards your behaviour with kinetic movements and light changes. Let’s get fascinated about first interactions in the field of STEAM – because education is the most important tool we have, to build up our future!
I am designed simple, intuitive and inspired by nature! You can design my leaves or vase and change my behavior by learning the first steps of programming up to advanced levels.
Get any age group excited!
Get creative and change my petal design
Discover my natural and artificial components

1. Petals 2. Kinematic 3. Actuator 4. Controller PCB 5. Vase
Change my behaviour!
Interact with my movement and my light
They call me: Bionic Flower
Bring me to life!
Working with me as a bionic kit promotes the following skills in learners:
- Practical work
- Interdisciplinary work
- Problem-solving orientation
- Critical thinking
- Support in competent handling of digital media
- Innovative ability through enthusiasm for inspiring innovations
- Bionic work
How I work:
My intelligence is stored on a little micro-controller, which you can program. I have sensor boards. Connect them to me as they help me to identify what is happening in my surroundings. Since Iam IoT capable I can react on my environment through data that is transferred to me. This way I can be responsive and interactive.
Let me explain you more on how I want to pass on my STEAM features to you.
What is STEAM?
STEAM Education is an approach to link disciplines and combines the five fields science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. With STEAM we can learn tools and methods to explore new and creative ways of problem solving, creative innovating, and we learn to connect multiple fields.
I want to make education fun. Can you see my references to nature? Look closely and discover my inspiration from the world of plants ! Learn more here
I’m intelligent! But how is that possible? My personality, my brains and my senses are placed on a small circuit board! Learn more here
There is a mechanism behind every movement, this is an important part of the design. Can you figure out how I move? Learn more here
Let’s get creative! You can turn me into your favorite flower, design my leaves, create new ones and design my vase. Lets get started here
Have you ever wondered about the patterns we find in nature? How are these related to mathematics?
Do you know the Golden Spiral and the number phi? Like my relatives from nature, I have exciting principles from nature in me. Learn more here
I hope I could blossom up your interest in exploring me!
Get all age groups involved!
Focused to excite girls about STEAM Robotics!
The educational variant, called Bionic Flower, is a product of Festo Didactic and is developed in cooperation with SkySpirit.
