Sip 'N Science Webinars

We miss all of you and wanted to continue providing lifelong learning to our community. September would normally be the start of our Evenings at Whitney fall lecture series. As we prepare to be able to deliver it safely at Whitney's Lohman Auditorium we have launched a short science series virtually to join together!  

Pleaes join us for Sip 'N Science - Until we can get back together again! Once you register just login on the dates to watch, grab a beverage of your choice, or enjoy our links to recipes.

There will be a 20 minute webinar with a Q&A interactive discussion afterwards. Registration is required. We hope you can join us!

The Tao of Fish Swimming

Thursday, September 17
6:00 - 6:40 p.m.

Dr. James Liao 
Associate Professor of Biology
Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience

Watch the Webinar

*Shown live on 9/17/20

During his talk Dr. Liao will explore: the ability of animals to sense and navigate complex environments is unrivaled by even the most sophisticated robots known to humans. Nowhere is this more challenging to understand than in the three-dimensional environment of water, where animals are unconstrained by gravity, often in turbulence flows, and appendages and bodies are at the mercy of complex water interactions.

Fishes, which comprise over half of all living vertebrates, have an exquisite way to negotiate turbulence. Dr. Liao will share what his team's research has shown in understanding how fish swim in unsteady flows, and how by studying nature‚Äôs designs we can reveal insights into some of the biggest challenges in engineering and robotics.
