Science in Your Daily Life
Experiencing the outdoors is a cherished activity. The peaceful and calm or exhilarating and exciting emotions that flow through our bodies are the reason we venture into nature and why we yearn to venture back.

Regardless of our personal experiential affinities, have you ever correlated those natural processes witnessed in nature and how they might actually serve as the blueprint for modern technology in our daily lives? Have you ever wondered what a water treatment facility and a wetland have in common, why tall buildings sway in the wind like centuries-old trees, or how the leading edge of an airplane wing resembles an owl’s wing? Also, how does technology enhance our nature adventures? How can technology (apps) assist and improve our outings and not serve as a digital distraction?

Grab your gadgets and join us for a talk with Sensing Nature Ecologist Brian Lane as he reveals the benefits of science in your daily life!

This webinar is recommended for adults and families (suggested ages of 7 years old and up).

This program is sponsored by the Friends of Weedon Island. Our Friends support the Weedon Island Preserve through education, preservation and protection of its habitats, ecology, and cultural history. Learn more about our Friends at https://friendsofweedonisland.org/.
