miSci is Schenectady NY’s Museum of Innovation and Science. You can escape winter’s seemingly never-ending chill and discover hundreds of brilliantly colored native butterflies at miSci’s new indoor butterfly house which is open through April 19th.
Dr. Mac Sudduth is miSci’s Executive Director and he joins us to talk about the Butterfly House and other goings-on at miSci.
We are also joined by Dr. Radislav Potyrailo a Principal Scientist in Chemistry & Chemical Engineering for GE Global Research. Tonight, he will be giving a lecture at miSci entitled Learning from Nature: Advancing Technologies from Biomimicry to Biomimetics and to Bioinspiration. He’s going to tell us a bit about sensors that were inspired by the iridescent scales of the Morpho butterfly wings.
