Batteries, Genes, and Beyond

Alex Bertuccio (Chemical and Biochemical Engineering)

Have you ever wondered how beer is made? Maybe how a battery works? Or for that matter, how anything in your life is made? This seminar series will take a look at some of the “behind the scenes” engineering that makes products you use in your everyday life ranging from plastics to batteries to beer. We’ll also delve into how some of these items affect the world. Other topics discussed are gene editing/ gene silencing, the engineering behind an automobile, and how clean is your water?
