Jim Vartuli

Mankind can learn a lot by observing nature. Nature has been evolving over more than a billion years constantly optimizing a more efficient living organism. By mimicking nature, we can find more effective methods that greatly enhance our life style. The presentation will cover how mankind has tried to replicate nature in two main areas — structures and surfaces. We will discuss how plants, animals, and even insects, have helped solve some of our structural and surface challenges.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
No prior registration required.
