About this event

Feeling antsy? Join us as we explore brilliant & bizarre creatures

Secret Science Club presents Animal Behaviorist & Swarm Intelligence Expert Simon Garnier

Schools of fish, migrating birds, and other animals that move as collectives exhibit uncanny behavior -- swarming, murmurating, ebbing & flowing almost like liquids.

Flowing armies of ants can even build bridges and scaffolding with their own bodies. They do it spontaneously, forming themselves into shapes and structures with astonishing efficiency.

At the next Secret Science Club, biologist Simon Garnier explores this “living architecture” and the small minds behind it. How do these brilliant creatures use collective intelligence to perform feats of engineering that put human efforts to shame?

BEFORE & AFTER

- Imbibe our streaming cocktail of the night, the “Myrmeration”

- Groove to wild, sinuous, pulsating tunes

- Munch on pepperoni, mushroom truffle oil, and Margherita artisan pizza

- Stick around for the scintillating Q&A

SIMON GARNIER is director of the Swarm Lab and professor of biology at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He researches robot swarms, army ants, and socially networked slime molds to learn how intelligent collective behaviors (and not so intelligent ones) emerge in groups. He also considers the question of self-organization in nature -- in everything from cells to human crowds. Dr. Garnier has been a featured scientist on Science Friday and the Guardian technology video series, and in National Geographic, Scientific American, Mashable, The Verge, and the New York Times.
