On May 17th, 2018 I was invited to speak at the Exploratorium’s Everything Matters event series hosted by Exploratorium’s Ron Hipschman. Everything Matters is a monthly lecture series that explores each month a new element on the periodic table of elements. In May the element was Copper and so I was invited to speak about the connection of copper to spiders and other arachnids/arthropods. This was my first ever public talk so I was rather nervous but hopefully I was able to educate everyone about the world of spiders, coppers, chemicals, and their respiratory system and make it fun at the same time! You can watch my portion of my talk here or below!
