Science Study Break - Spider-Man!
Location: Life Science Library (MAI 220)
Speaker: Dr. Ruth Buskirk, School of Biological Sciences
Spider expert (and Spidey fan) Dr. Ruth Buskirk kept the SRO crowd of spider enthusiasts enthralled. The program presented scenes from the movies Spider-Man I and Spider-Man II, as well as panels from the original Stan Lee-Steve Ditko comic. Audience members besieged Dr. Buskirk with questions about real spider habits, spider silk strength and production, and web-building versus the depictions in the films.
