Trash Auditing 101
Friday, November 21, 7 p.m.
Have you ever done a trash audit? At this DIY event, you’ll have a chance to roll up your sleeves, put on Kevlar gloves, and slice open some trash bags to see what you can learn. Guided by researchers from the UW-Madison Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, you’ll explore materials sustainability and find new ways to encourage everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle.
About DIY Science
Hands-on laboratory experiences are not just for kids! Each month, a
different activity encourages adult (18+) audiences to put on lab coats,
goggles and gloves and get a firsthand sense of cutting-edge research.
Usually held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday evenings, these do-it-yourself labs feature different topics ranging from epigenetics to microfluidics to nanotechnology to rapid prototyping and beyond.
DIY Science is supported by Morgridge Institute for Research, UW–Madison and WARF.
