SCIENCE IN THE K-12 SCHOOLS: Oh My, do we have it WRONG!

Monday, October 01 3:15 pm - 5:00 pm - Recital Hall (RH)
http://www.ecs.csun.edu/ecsdean/docs/Miaoulis20121001.pdf

Although humans make the majority of the objects we interact with and use during our day-to-day lives, the current school curriculum focuses very little on how our human-made, or designed world, is made. Pens, cars, pills, buildings are all technologies and the results of the engineering design process. Most educators claim that science is the discipline that teaches children about the world around them. However science curricula focus only on the natural world which constitutes only a minor part of our day to day life. Children spend enormous amounts of time learning things that are totally irrelevant to their lives and become adults who are technologically illiterate. Ioannis (Yannis) Miaoulis, President and Director of the Museum of Science in Boston will discuss how our educational system has missed the point and talk about a major initiative to introduce the human made world and engineering in schools nationwide.

Image for ENERGY RECOVERY AND CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION FROM DISTILLERY WASTEWATER TREATMENT PROJECTSENERGY RECOVERY AND CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION FROM DISTILLERY WASTEWATER TREATMENT PROJECTS

11:00 am - 12:15 pm - University Student Union Theater (USU)
http://www.ecs.csun.edu/ecsdean/docs/Kulkarni20121025.pdf

Distilleries manufacture alcohol from molasses which is wastewater generated in cane sugar industry. The wastewater generated in the distillation process is called spent wash which is highly organic and polluting in nature. As per the norms of Pollution Control Board, distilleries have to follow âZero discharge policyâ. Traditionally, anaerobic lagoons followed by composting treatment is used. Though this method conforms the norms of Pollution Control Boards, it emits methane a Green House Gas responsible for global warming and climate change. The presentation discusses a case study of a distillery in Maharashtra State which is implementing a project in which instead of anaerobic lagoons, bio-digester is used for the treatment of spent wash. The biogas generated in the treatment is captured and burnt to generate electrical energy. Attempts are being made to get financial assistance to this project in the form of Carbon Credits under Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The paper also discusses the project cycle of CDM.
