The natural world is filled with materials that are strong but lightweight, that can resist or heal fractures, absorb shocks but not collapse, or bend and not break. These strategies offer a wealth of inspiration for creating new human-made materials.

Join ASU engineering faculty Dhruv Bhate to learn more about how nature combines materials and structures to optimize mechanical performance in everything from honeycombs and luffa seedpods to sea sponges and animal skeletons. Discover how these strategies have inspired material innovation for use on earth – and in space!

Nature@Noon is a series of workshops that explores the collection of ASU’s new NatureMaker library and its potential to inspire sustainable innovation. NatureMaker is a collaboration between the Biomimicry Center and the ASU Library.

"This and That" features the artwork of Jenita Landrum, who explores race, class and gender through images reflecting the realities of living in urban spaces. The art in this exhibit reflects her journey through the art process, crossing mediums of paint, mixed media and found objects.

Upon completion of her Master of Fine Art Degree at Ohio State University, she opened The Art Loft Studios and Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, where Landrum's work and career took flight, with her creations exhibited nationally and internationally in group and solo exhibition. She has traveled internationally to pursue fellowships in Ghana, Africa; Dresden, Germany and Poland.
