Born Global runs many various projects through internships on a semester basis (summer, fall, spring). These projects can be categorized into two broader sections, each of which are further sub-categorized. To find out more information, please click on one of the following:
Our interns are working on a revolutionary new real-world application for biomimicry innovation called the Biohub which is already being implemented at several of Born Global's seven power plants located across New England. This system is eliminating waste by design, creating new jobs and energy sources using waste from local sources. The Biohub program offers interns the opportunity to develop innovations in three categories: Waste-Based Innovation, Regenerative Resources, and Circular Economics.
Another exciting project our interns are developing is the Alchemist Garden which is an application providing an interactive educational experience about biomimicry. The game is grounded in real-world biomes around the world which interns are engaged in mapping and understanding to draw out the unique genius of the place. Work is also being done to design innovative gameplay strategies which involve sacred geometry and story-making, all with the intention to connect humans and nature.
HOMEdash is a system for tracking the impacts of the Foundation's projects using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a way to visualize the global reach of their success.
