Taste of Science: Humanity Needs Dreamers + The Secret World of Arachnids


Humanity Needs Dreamers: Marie Curie

In honor of Curie's 150th birthday, experience a preview screening of the new immersive science film Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie with filmmaker Jen Myronuk and scholar & playwright Susan Marie Frontczak.

Find out why a passion for math led a software engineer to write a play plus ideas for bringing your science story to the stage.

The Secret World of Arachnids

Enter the secret world of spiders, scorpions and their kin, where pharmaceuticals are manufactured in-house and there are no rules when it comes to courtship.

Arachnids are the oldest group of predators on land, and their 450 million year reign on earth has lead to some remarkable adaptations. They captivate our fear and imagination, yet we know surprisingly little about these creatures.

We will explore some of the current research on arachnid behavior, biochemistry, and potential therapeutics.

Speaker: Lauren Esposito, Cal Adademy of Sciences
