Jan. 23, 2020 – DENTON – Texas Woman’s University will host the Science Education for New Civic Engagements and Responsibilities Center for Innovation Southwest Spring 2020 Symposium, titled “Citizen Science: The Impact on our Communities by Plastics in Our Environment,” Friday, Jan. 31. The event will take place 9 a.m.-6 p.m. in room 259 of the Ann Stuart Science Complex, located on TWU’s Denton campus.

The symposium will be a “zero impact,” or waste-free, event. Educators, researchers and professionals from across the U.S. will discuss the environmental, economic and health-related impact of plastics in our soil, air and water. Presentation topics include the power of film in environmental science, scientific influence on policy decisions, hosting your own zero-impact event, and plastics in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex freshwater systems.

The TWU chemistry student organization, Kappa Epsilon Mu, will present winning submissions from their student video competition, which challenged students from all disciplines to create 4-6 minute videos about plastics. Event attendees are encouraged to bring posters demonstrating how they encourage civic responsibility through teaching, research or community service.

The event is free and open to the public. To register, visit the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement event page.
