Olin Hall (and Bodine)

Many of you may remember SpiderFests of the past. We’re doing it again this year, but in an even more exciting context. Multiple research groups will welcome you to visit their labs and learn about the science happening at L&C!  

Come learn about the science of:

  • Nanoparticles! With Anne Bentley and her students
  • Intoxicated fruit flies! With Norma Velazquez-Ulloa and her students
  • Cybersecurity!  With Jens Mache and his students
  • Fish brainbows! With Tamily Weissman-Unni and her students
  • Forests! With Margaret Metz and her students
  • Human Brains! With Todd Watson and his students
  • Arachnids and venoms! With Greta Binford and her students
  • The species in our campus collections (eg. mammals, birds, fungi….) with the Natural History Club
Our goal with this event is to engage local people across the community in science. We will share stories of the questions we are asking and answering on campus and the fun of discovery. There will be games, treats, demonstrations including spider venom collection & cybersecurity puzzles to solve. The event will take place in Olin (Bentley Lab and Mache group in Olin computer labs) and on the 1st and 2nd floors of Bodine. Signs and maps will guide your way.
