Title：The Ways of the Ants
Abstract：Ants have evolved ingenious solutions to nature’s problems. They are farmers, trappers, builders, herders, gliders, water-walkers, and much more. Perhaps most interesting of all – like humans, they form complex societies that function with no central control. We explore the many oddities of the ant world.

Title：What Are We?
Abstract：We all have an idea of who and what we think we are, but what is the truth? I will begin by describing similarities between us and animals, including dinosaurs. Then I will discuss what makes a human survive. Surprisingly, each of us turns out to be a collection of many different lifeforms, all helping each other. Which part is "me"?
