    Marin Science Seminar Presentation: “Birdbots, Bugbots, and Faux Gecko: Imitating Nature at Fearing Lab, Berkeley" with Ian Krase, TLHS grad and freshman at UC Berkeley (May 23, 2012, Terra Linda High School)

    Many of today's robots are large, clunky assemblages of wheels, wires, and electronics. On the other hand, we can make much more mobile and effective ones by learning from millions of years of natural evolution. At the Fearing Lab in UC Berkeley, we imitate cockroaches, birds, and geckos; animals with very interesting properties. What can we gain by modeling our machines after these runners, fliers, and climbers?.

    Ian Krase is an alumnus of Terra Linda High School, who took a strong interest in science and engineering in a wide variety of subfields. Ian taught himself machining, built electronic equipment, and made glass mirrors the old way. He also worked on equipment during internships at the UC Berkeley nanotechnology labs. Currently he is an undergraduate at UC Berkeley in the Mechanical Engineering department where he has discovered his love of robotics and joined the Fearing Lab, a group which focuses on imitating nature to make highly efficient small robots.

  4. Marin Science Seminar Presentation: "A Postbac on the Beamline: Doing Physics at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source" (November 6, 2013) marinscienceseminar.com/speakers/pstewart.html

    This talk will present my work at Lawrence Berkeley Lab as an Advanced Light Source beamline postbac. This will mean explaining the synchrotron facility, X-ray scattering, and the impact this research can have upon the commercial and consumer oriented sides of life.

    Polite Stewart met his first particle accelerator at Fermi Lab in Illinois, where he worked a summer job on a muon detector. Last summer, he interned as a researcher at North Carolina State University on a project to develop non-glare smart window glass.

    Mr. Stewart received his BS in Physics from Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College at Baton Rouge at the age of 18. He is currently a Postbaccalaureate Fellow in Experimental Systems at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory where he works at the Advanced Light Source (ALS).
