Sharks, Robots, Lasers, Locomotion in the Ocean!
Secret Science Club presents biologist, comparative physiologist, and biomechanics expert Brooke Flammang of the Fluid Locomotion Lab.
MONDAY, August 14, 8PM @ the Bell House, FREE!
How do fish sense the fluid dynamics of the ocean around them? Why do fish have different shapes? Explore mysteries of walking cave fish, propulsive shark tails, and why the hitchhiking remora fish sucks (or doesn’t).
