Heb je je wel eens afgevraagd hoe het is om een ander dier te zijn? Of een plant of bacterie? Zou je bewustzijn hebben of intelligent zijn? Ben je dan in staat om de wereld om je heen op te nemen en met anderen te communiceren? Wat kunnen we leren van innovaties uit de natuur bij technologische ontwikkelingen en het ontwerpen van nieuwe materialen? Dit en meer in februari.
