Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Seminar: Fire ants build a raft in two minutes, grubs eat a pizza in two hours

Presented by David Hu, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Biology and Adjunct Professor of Physics at Georgia Tech. Hu is a mechanical engineer who studies the interactions of animals with water. His team has discovered how dogs shake dry, how insects walk on water and how eyelashes protect the eyes from drying.

🐜 In this seminar, learn how insects like fire ants and black soldier fly larvae can teach us in the creation of synthetic systems in this seminar hosted by mechanical engineering Fulton Schools Assistant Professor Spring Berman.
