Outreach: Soaring Into The Future

NSF made a Children’s book about the students, birds, and robots in the Lentink lab. The book was handed out to kids during the 2018 USA Science & Engineering Festival The story in the book titled ‘Soaring Into The Future” is based on research by alumnus Eric Gutierrez and his amazing Bird Obi, who he trained to fly with miniature laser goggles to do flight research together. The story was all over the internet in 2016 and the illustrations in the children’s book are wonderful. Side stories feature the other bird and robot projects in the lab, including those of Diana Chin, Laura Matloff, Eric Chang and Amanda Stowers, as well as postdocs Dan Quinn, Daniel Kress and others.
