Come to a New Mexico PBS Science Café! A clip from an episode of NOVA scienceNOW, Nature or a comparable program will be screened. An expert on the topic will attend to answer questions & have an open discussion with the audience.


While mankind struggles with issues of environmental sustainability for future generations, nature has led us to seek out new solutions to our technological problems in the amazing abilities of plants, animals and even viruses. While Mother Nature and biomimicry may hold the answers to tomorrow's challenges, it still takes the creativity and hard work of engineers and scientists to recognize them, combining the best of both worlds.

Come to the October New Mexico PBS Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA Making Stuff Wilder and then join in a discussion with Dr. Kenneth Armijo, Staff Scientist and Research & Development Engineer, of Sandia National Laboratories. Dr. Armijo will discuss keys to successful engineering design as well as scientific innovations in materials and technology that have been inspired by nature.
