Science on Tap Features Talk on Energy Technology

The second ‘Science on Tap’ will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd at 6pm at Caffé 312 in Uptown Greenwood. Science on Tap is a community lecture series designed to share some of the scientific advances happening in Greenwood.
The May 3rd event will feature Albert Dukes, PhD, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Lander University. Dr. Dukes will discuss ‘Nanotechnology: How the science of small things has a big impact.’ The presentation will be followed by time for discussion and questions.
“Nanotechnology is playing an emerging role in how we produce and use energy,” said Dukes. “This technology helps us to produce more efficient solar cells so that we can better generate electricity without increasing carbon dioxide emissions.”

Science on Tap is an initiative started and organized by the Greenwood Genetic Center. “This program originated as a way for local scientists to share their work in an informal and accessible way with the broader Greenwood community,” said Leta Tribble, Director of Education at the Greenwood Genetic Center. “Scientists and non-scientists alike are invited for a fun and engaging look into the research happening right here in our area.”

The public is invited, and the event is free to attend. Registration is not required, but interested individuals are asked to RSVP to GGC at lrumfelt@ggc.org or 864-388-1801 by Monday, May 2.

Calls were made to Greenwood Genetic Center to confirm her diagnosis and guide her care. Dr. Champaigne and Ami...
