Edinburgh Science - 13th April, Pleasance, 5.30 pm - 7 pm.


The natural world has influenced technology for years. Velcro came from sticky burdock seeds, while high-speed bullet trains might not exist without the kingfisher’s streamlined beak. Dr Kathryn Harkup hosts as biomechanics researcher Dr Naomi Nakayama, founder of Biomimicry UK, Richard James MacCowan, and innovative textiles researcher Dr Veronika Kapsali explore the world of biomimetics, where engineering is inspired by the world around us.
