The Science Museum of Virginia is currently closed to the public so we're taking our popular Lunch Break Science series, sponsored by Bon Secours, online!
Nature has long been a wondrous source of inspiration to humans. From antibacterial surfaces inspired by shark skin or super-strong materials inspired by shells, spiders and silkworms, to color inspired by water-repelling bird feathers, we explore how fascinating natural architectures can guide scientists and engineers in designing new technologies and products.
What: “From Silkworms to Sharks: How Nature Can Inspire Engineering,” presented by Vamsi Yadavalli, Associate Professor, Department of Chemical and Life Science Engineering, Virginia Commonwealth University.
When: Wednesday, June 17, 12 - 12:45 pm
Where: Zoom meeting in the comfort of your home
