Biomimicry Nebula in a Bottle

Join me TONIGHT!

Friday, June 2, 2017, from 6 to 8 pm at the Tempe Center for the Arts 

It’s FREE! And there is a wine bar. You can drink, in the gallery, while making stuff and talking science!

It’s a creative art and science mash-up. I will talk about how naturally flowing fluids, gases, and heat follow a common geometric pattern in nature. Natures movement is a logarithmic or exponentially growing spiral, as commonly seen in seashells for example. This pattern shows up everywhere in nature including in the pattern of swirling galaxies in outer space. This talk is combined with a hands-on workshop that is a fun opportunity to learn about biomimicry and play with both art and science. Each participant will create their own nebula in a bottle.

It’s a ladies night out – so grab your lady friends and let’s play with art and science!

Bottled Nebula: Learning from nature to create flow without friction – TONIGHT!

At Laboratory5 Inc. We bring together all elements of STEAM and tie them up into a package to promote the work each individual is doing in their fields to celebrate this work. We produce experiences so that those unfamiliar with the glorious, quirky, nerdy qualities of all areas of STEAM can be explored as an adventure to explain these fields.

Scientists discover a new blue

Discovered: The first new blue pigment in 200 years

Scientists discover a new blue, by accident of course, as is often the way with scientific discoveries. The color was discovered by chance by a group of Oregon State University chemists who were heating up chemicals to find new materials for electronics. They named it  YinMn (pronounced “yin-min”) which stands for the elements it’s made of: yitrium iridium, manganese, and oxygen.

 

They continue to search for a new stable, heat reflecting brilliant red, the most elusive color to synthesize.
