About This Activity

Using electron microscopy and fundamentals in physics, students will study numerous biological samples and uncover the origin behind many useful properties found in nature. Primary examples will be: super-hydrophobic leaves, anti-reflective insect eyes, sticky gecko feet and butterfly wings that are colored without using pigment. In addition, we explore some structural examples showcasing strength and toughness, through both materials and shape.
