Young Scientists from UK

Abstract:
Dr. Jonathan Wood who has specialised in Bioengineering and Nanotechnology dealt with the subject Four young scientists from UK were in Colombo recently to help stimulate an interest in Science and inspire students to view science as an exciting, challenging and empowering subject. Each of them has made outstanding achievements in their respective specialisations.

'What Mother Nature can teach us about materials, motion and manufacturing.' Jonathan's winning talk at the FameLab final 2006 was on why the amazing spider-man might have used spider silk to swing between buildings in Manhattan. At the students seminar he used simple demonstrations to describe how researchers are using the latest techniques to copy nature's engineering strategies to make new and better materials for our own needs.
