Milano Management Brown Bag Series: Reimagining Social Movements

February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

The power of social movements to hold governments, institutions, and individuals accountable is increasingly apparent in these troubling and turbulent times.

Science+Art+Design Workshop Sustainable Energy: Microbial Fuel Cells

February 21 @ 3:50 pm - 5:10 pm EST
Free RSVP Required

Description Current energy systems rely heavily on petroleum/crude oil to generate power but their production and use have contributed to climate change and pollution. Scientists and designers have discovered sustainable alternatives to crude oil such as solar panels and wind turbines, but their implementation is limited by economics, politics, and geography. The microbial fuel cell is currently being researched as an alternative form of energy that can both treat and create energy from wastewater and locally sourced sediment. The microbial life in these systems has evolved to survive and carry out metabolic processes to transfer electrons from molecule to molecule. We can harness this process by designing a circuit that directs the flow of these moving electrons such that they…

Science+Art+Design Workshop Sustainable Plastics: Biopolymers

February 28 @ 3:50 pm - 5:10 pm EST
Free RSVP Required

Image credit: Justin Hofman   Description  With 8 billion tons of plastic waste entering our oceans, a move towards recycling and reuse has been implemented. Alongside these efforts, a movement to create bio-degradable plastics is also underway. Commercially, if a plastic contains 20% renewable material it is considered to be “bio-based.” This 20% is usually made of shrimp shells, wood, coconut, wheat, corn or other renewable materials. This also means the remaining 80% can be made from traditional fossil fuel-based plastics polymers.  These fuel-based plastics leach and create a concentrated source of estrogen mimics which disrupt biodiversity and affect human health. Join us as we explore more sustainable and less toxic polymers in an effort to protect ecosystem health and reduce landfill…

Science+Art+Design Workshop Sustainable Dyes: Microbial Pigments

March 7 @ 3:50 pm - 5:10 pm EST
Free RSVP Required

Description Textile work is a $3 trillion-per-year industry which employs nearly 60 million people worldwide, according to economic research firm Euler Hermes and FashionUnited, an industry information resource. This industry has shifted its practices from chemical dye processes to natural dye processes and most recently has begun to explore biological pigments from bacteria, and algae to color textiles. This latter process reduces land and water use for plant growth, CO2 emissions required for heating dye baths, and chemical treatments required to chemically reduce the dyes to adhere to fibers. Come to the labs to "paint with living bacteria," learn how pigments can be applied to textiles, and how environmental factors and genetic differences affect color profiles. Please note: This is a two-session workshop.…
