    • SESSION 2 - THE NATURE OF NATURE

      January 12, January 19, January 26, February 2

      We don’t always realize what an inspiration nature has been. From Velcro to sonar, we’ve “copied” nature. Maybe we can even find our own “inventions” as we explore what’s been done.

      February 9, February 16, March 2, March 9

      It’s not just spiders, you know. Every living thing and many non-living things influence what goes on in the world. We’ll check out these relationships as we investigate the nature of Tifft.

    • SESSION 5 - MYSTERIOUS MICROS

      May 18, June 1, June 8, June 15

      We often focus on the “big” things in nature. What about the small things? There are insects, of course. What about the first growth of a plant? What’s watermeal, anyway? What’s up with an individual feather? So many things we overlook are where it all starts.
