BUG SHELLS AND BUTTERFLY WINGS: Can nature inspire the creation on new materials?
Dr. Mark MacLachlan is in the business of creating materials about one-thousandth of the width of a hair and therefor can only be “seen” with an electron microscope. Many of these materials mimic the structural features used by nature, such as in the coloration of beetles and butterflies. These materials are important for developing reflective window coatings, sensors, and many other applications.

8:00 pm Elizabeth Shepherd @ Vernon Jazz Club

Velvety-voiced pianist Elizabeth Shepherd arrived on the international scene in 2006 when her debut album Start To Move was voted one of the top jazz albums of the year by the listeners of the influential Gilles Peterson Show on BBC Radio Worldwide. Since then, the Montreal-based soul-jazz innovator has established herself as one of the most alluring and imaginative artists on the scene today. Versed in equal parts Stevie Wonder, Salvation Army brass bands and classical sonatas, it is perhaps no surprise that this globetrotting talent has developed such a distinct and unique voice.
