Citizens flock to TU's Science and Technology open house

Abstract:
A host of current and future scientists combined last weekend at the Tuskegee University Kellogg Conference Center for the purpose of motivation. To them, their presence was all about encouraging students to pursue advanced degrees in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

The McWane Science Center in Birmingham, which was represented at the open house by Lawrence Cooper, has a nanotechnology partnership with Tuskegee University. At Cooper's table, students used Alka-Seltzer tablets to study the speed and process of chemical reactions.

Also attending thanks to TU's renowned work with nanotechnology were Dr. Karen Boykin and Jonathan Bonner, who demonstrated the science behind clean drinking water.

Their demonstration focused on emerging pollutants in water and wastewater that aren't being addressed by conventional quality standards.

What Boykin and Bonner showed attending students from across the state was that silver nanoparticles commonly used in hand sanitizers aren't being filtered out of drinking water. These particles can have adverse effects on humans, but thankfully their team at UA has identified the rough outline of a treatment process.
