Student working on a research project.

Swimming/Flying In Nature

The idea here is to capture animals in their natural habitat using high-speed cameras as opposed to in the laboratory. Also you can make slow motion movies of fluids flow, contact, droplets, or anything that is moving.

We have a few high-speed cameras available to interested students to borrow and have fun with. We only require that you upload your movies onto our youtube channel:
with enough information.

These videos will provide a great database for scientist for studying the animal behavior in nature and engineers for bio-inspired design.
