Ant Behavior; Blue Sky – Mar 28

Wonderfest Science Envoys are early-career researchers with special communication skills and aspirations. Following short talks on provocative modern science topics, these two Science Envoys will answer questions with insight and enthusiasm:

  • Stanford biologist Daniel Friedman discusses how ants have conquered the world through their use of collective (emergent, colony-level) behavior.
  • UC Berkeley physicist Yi-Chuan Lu explores how a thin layer of air generates a beautiful blue sky and reveals a process of radiation transfer that is responsible for our warming climate.
