Baltimore-Oriole-regEvery year millions of migratory birds make tremendous journeys across the globe. Biologists have long-wondered how birds and other migratory animals can travel such vast distances so precisely. Until recently their remarkable navigation skills have remained a mystery. On Monday, October 20th, Dr. Kelly Foyle will give a talk that explores new research by quantum biologists which has shown that birds are actually using quantum mechanics to make precise measurements of Earth's magnetic field in order to determine their path. She promises that we will also see that quantum physicists might have a thing or two to learn from birds!

The Bluewater Association for Lifelong Learning (BALL) is pleased to present this special lecture in cooperation with Waterloo, Ontario's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics.

Dr. Kelly Foyle, one of Perimeter Institute's outreach scientists, received her doctorate from the University of Heidelberg in Germany while working at the Max-Planck Institute for Astronomy. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship at McMaster University researching galaxies in the nearby Universe. She loves learning and sharing her passion for science. She is also an avid birder.
