Spiders & Spider-Man – July 2

We humans have formally identified some 50,000 spider species, ranging in size from sandgrain to small skateboard. Spiders breathe air, have four pairs of eyes, and spin silk that is stronger (pound for pound) than steel. For 20-30 minutes following a special screening of the just-released Spider-Man: Far From Home, Wonderfest "Cinema Science" presents REAL spidey insights plus audience Q&A with Dr. Jack Fraser, arachnophile extraordinaire.

Jack Fraser, PhD (entomology, UC Berkeley), is past president of the Northern California Spider Society. He has conducted spider seminars at Point Reyes and at East Bay Regional Parks. This true spider-man cannot (yet) shoot spider silk.
