At the next Secret Science Club, squid-ologist Diana Li explores undersea life and shares her amazing discoveries about these transfixing, tentacled creatures.

Get ready to dive deep! More than just calamari—squids are some of the most extreme creatures on the planet. Dr. Li asks:

-- How are swimming squid literally like rockets?

-- Of all the over 300 species of squids—from the alien-like Big Fin Squid to the see-through Glass Squid—which species deserves to be crowned Most Wondrous?

-- What’s it like getting up close and personal with squid in the lab and in the ocean? And what’s it like to get inked?

Before & After --Try our propulsive cocktail of the evening, the “Night Swimmer” --Groove to wet & wild tunes --Stick around for the scintillating and salty Q&A

DIANA LI is a scientist & educator at Columbia University. She earned her Ph.D. at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station where she studied the neurophysiology and biomechanics of swimming squid. She is currently Associate Director of Education & Training Initiatives at Columbia's Mortimer B.
