Sip of Science #003 Aboard the Miami Science Barge

August 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10.00 – $15.00

You’re invited to Sip of Science on the Miami Science Barge! Sip of Science is a monthly lecture series hosted on the Miami Science Barge where cool people get to talk to other cool people about cool environmental stuff. Enjoy discussion and drinks with a talk that makes you think!

This month we feature Jamie Theobald of FIU, Department of Biological Sciences.

His lab focuses on insect neurobiology and visually guided light behavior, and how light pollution can affect insects. “Wings get insects into the air, but like human aircraft, control systems were the real innovation. Vision is centrally important to flight control as it provides instantaneous information about speed, heading, deviations from course, obstacles, and navigational targets.”

Quench your thirst for knowledge with a Sip of Science! (But bring your own cup!) #msbsos #byoc

WHEN: Wednesday, August 17, 2016 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
