Sometimes the solutions to modern challenges are right in front of our eyes. Scientists and engineers showcase how nature can inspire answers to complex problems with a few special demonstrations. Get up close with a swimming fish robot and a flying robot that can grasp like a hawk!.  Hear how the motion of bacteria can be used to help humans. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “When nature has work to be done, she creates a genius to do it.” Maybe it’s best we take a little advice from Mother Nature herself.
