Bruce Museum to celebrate with special penguin lecture, 3D-printing demonstration
The Bruce Museum’s Black-footed Penguin specimen and its entirely 3D-printed life-size replica.


GREENWICH, CT.- Tuesday, January 20, is Penguin Awareness Day honoring the quirky, flightless bird found throughout the Southern Hemisphere. To celebrate, the Bruce Museum will present a science lecture and a demonstration of the 3D printing of its very own Black-footed Penguin specimen.

The Museum has good reason to celebrate. Its curator of science, Dr. Daniel Ksepka, is a world-renowned expert on the subject.

"Penguins are beloved to people throughout the world for charming behaviors and their remarkable ability to survive in extreme environments like Antarctica,” Dr. Ksepka notes. “They make perfect ambassadors for conservation."

At 7:00 pm on Tuesday, January 20, Dr. Ksepka will discuss penguin evolution and the 60-million-year March of the Fossil Penguins. Afterwards, MakerBot of Greenwich will discuss their scanning and 3D printing technology while replicating small versions of the Museum’s penguin specimen. The actual penguin and a life-size replica will also be on view. Small penguin replicas will be on sale in the Museum Store.

The event is open to the public and begins with a reception at 6:30 p.m. The special program complements the Museum’s current exhibition Antarctica: Photographs by Diane Tuft, which is generously supported by Gabelli Funds and the Charles M. and Deborah G. Royce Exhibition Fund.

Reservations are required and can be made by calling 203-413-6757 or emailing info@brucemuseum.org. The cost is free to Museum members, non-members are $15.
