Lab Workshops use a social justice framework to empower attendees with the knowledge, values, and methods of science to address pressing planetary health challenges facing our democracy.
Lab staff highlight basic scientific principles and techniques as they relate to emerging practices and innovations to support sustainable development such as: the creation of bioplastics; color assays to monitor water quality in response to increased climatic weather events; the use of microbial biopigments for textiles; and, the influence that materials and human activity can have antibiotic resistance.
All Labs are FREE but we do ask that you RSVP and review resources prior to the lab session. We will be taking reservations starting Aug 20th at this site tinyurl.com/z4n45ja. We also welcome drop-in for open seats on Fridays, but ask that those interested check for prep materials and availability of open seats by contacting Tnssciencelabs@newschool.edu the week of the lab workshop.
