UMGC Presents: The Magic of Bamboo
Dr. Harlow, Professor of Psychology, has been an avid bamboo hobbyist for more than two decades. In this presentation he will give a general introduction to bamboo, some of its different types, roles, and cultural uses.
Bamboo is a grass that ranges in height from a few inches to over one hundred feet. It is indigenous to all inhabited continents except Europe and has played a significant role in cultures around the world. Sometimes referred to as the "poor man's timber," bamboo is known for its strength, flexibility, and the ease with which it can be worked using simple tools. In this talk, we will explore some of the most common types of this renewable resource and examine its significance, both in myth and everyday use.
