In this paper, we present a new course entitled "Biomimicry: from life\ to\ nanotechnological innovations" at the Mines Nancy\ Engineering\ School, Nancy, France, and explain how we developed a specific curriculum covering biomimicry. We discuss strategies that can be followed by teachers\ to\ explain selected contents in the multi-disciplinary field of biomimicry and/or bioinspiration\ to\ undergraduate\ students\ and how practical classroom activities can be conducted as individual or team work. We hope that sharing our experience will help teachers and senior researchers disseminate useful concepts and real examples of\ biomimetic\ principles and tools\ for\ the\ development\ of new\ materials, new/improved\ design\ and fabrication strategies, and innovation methodologies.
