FRIDAY FEBRUARY 22 2013 | 6:00PM | ROOM 215 | 7 EAST 7TH STREET
Ecovative has spent five years developing an alternative to plastics that are grown using fungi and agricultural waste. Sam Harrington and Sue Van Hook of Ecovative will talk about the inspiration and thinking behind these materials from two perspectives: biology/mycology and engineering/design. These environmentally responsible innovations are influenced by natural systems design, and utilize billions of years of natural R&D.
This event is free and open to the public
