Posted on January 12, 2016, BY Matthew Beltz
The Bucknell Institute for Lifelong Learning (BILL) will present its first in a series of "Tea & Talk" presentations for 2016 on Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 3:30 p.m. at The Village Common, 6 Tressler Blvd. in Lewisburg. The featured speaker will be Professor Erin Jablonski, chemical engineering.
Doors open at 3 p.m. and this event is open to the public. Teatime refreshments will be provided free of charge.
Prof. Jablonski's talk is titled "Addressing Basic Needs Through the Lens of Engineering." It will focus on the opportunities presented when simple technologies are applied to providing basic needs such as food, water, shelter, power and sanitation. Examples are drawn from several currents events such as the impact of the California drought on food production and price and recent attempts to eliminate food waste, such as the EPA's Food Recovery Challenge. Prof. Jablonski will draw on her own research and courses she had taught to provide a broad perspective on how engineers play major roles in providing for basic needs on a global scale.
