Samuel Cord Stier Biography

Samuel Cord Stier started a revolution in youth education through his work bringing the fascinating field of Nature-inspired invention into schools everywhere (a.k.a. "biomimicry"). Founding Director of The Center for Learning with Nature, Stier regularly delights and enthralls audiences with the latest developments in innovation inspired by Nature, how the world outside our windows can teach humankind to thrive on Earth over the long term, and ways in which teachers can use Nature to spark students’ interest in STEM/STEAM.

Stier’s insight into how nature can change the way we look at STEM and more importantly how we teach and do STEM is truly inspiring. His ideas and thoughts on how educators can inject excitement and passion into their teaching by applying what nature has already figured out was incredible. One of the best keynote speakers we have ever had.” – Dr. Tamara Goetz, Director, Utah STEM Action Center, Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development

An expert in the history and methodology of Nature-inspired technology, Stier has served as an innovation consultant to some of the largest companies in the world. In addition to directing The Center for Learning with Nature, Stier teaches bio-inspired design in the engineering college at Texas Tech University and science and sustainable innovation at Otis College of Art and Design, the 6th ranked college in the U.S. in terms of enhancing earning potential (just after Harvard).
