Spider Science – May 7

Do spiders deserve much better press? Modern media tend to portray spiders as eight-legged, multi-eyed terrors. With deeper exposure, and open minds, can we come to see the beauty and benefits of our arachnid aquaintances? UC Berkeley scientist Trinity Walls thinks so. Her life-long journey — from curious child to rigorous researcher — reveals spider science to be an avenue of creative self-expression that offers rich insights into nature and society.

Our speaker, arachnologist Trinity Walls, is a PhD candidate in UC Berkeley's Laboratory of Animal Communication and Behavior. She is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy!
