Dare to Navigate a Complex World

Bats are creatures feared by many humans, but definitely not Laura Kloepper. Laura has dedicated her research to investigating how these animals use their sonar in large groups without interfering with one another. She believes that by studying these animals, we can improve the sonar technology that is becoming more ubiquitous in our modern world and help society in other ways, too.

Join Laura as she describes what it is like to stand in a cave with half a million bats overhead, and more importantly, as she explores how bats can teach humans valuable lessons for navigating the complexities of our own world.
