TED Talks- November
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). Their agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation. Join us for Glow-in-the-dark sharks and other stunning creatures. Just a few meters below the waves, marine biologist and explorer-photographer David Gruber discovered something amazing – a surprising new range of sea creatures that glow in many colors in the ocean’s dim blue light. Join his journey in search of bio fluorescent sharks, seahorses, sea turtles and more, and learn how these light-up creatures could illuminate a new understanding of our brains.
