TXMOST Talks – When a Dumpster Home Goes Boom: The Dumpster Project and Energy Science


Tues, May 9th @ 6:30PM

Sit in on our lecture series one evening every month.

These talks provide an opportunity to learn about and discuss a variety of scientific concepts with local STEM professionals

This month, Amanda Masino, Ph.D. and Leon Vanstone, Ph.D will be speaking about The Dumpster Project and Energy Science.

The Dumpster Project is transforming a used trash dumpster into an environmentally-friendly home to order to engage and educate on science and sustainability. The Project, based at Huston-Tillotson University, explores the connections between a healthy home and a healthy planet through an evolving Dumpster home linked to programs for K-16 students, educators, and community groups. We use the Dumpster to demonstrate – and experiment with – the ways we can all live more sustainability, including conserving water, managing energy use, reducing waste, and maintaining clean air. We also use the Dumpster Project to convey science in fresh ways to learners of all ages. Join us to hear about the latest additions to the Dumpster home and how we are using the Dumpster to present basic concepts of heat and energy in vivid ways. Includes live demos!
