Where do you come from, where do you go, where do you come from CARBON-eyed Joe?
 
Can something be made from nothing? Can something really just disappear into thin air? We will talk about corn as a way to understand the carbon cycle. And we'll eat popcorn!

Eva Stricker is a Research Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico Biology Department. She works in deserts and other drylands to understand how plants and microbes in the soil get fertilizer from the environment.

A time to eat, drink, & talk about Science! - 7th year of Science on Tap

Design Thinking with our Community

Although our public buildings and spaces have been required to “reasonably accommodate” individuals with disabilities since the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, many buildings are barely ADA-compliant, rather than ADA-friendly. For example, push-button aides on heavy external building doors are often far too high for people with limited upper body mobility to operate from a wheelchair. Human-Centered Design is being used at the University of New Mexico to partner our engineering students with community members who know what the flaws are with our current assistive aides. Together, they are building creative designs that are tailor-maid to adapt the environment to the user.

At this event, you’ll hear a bit about the theory behind Design Thinking, and you’ll have a chance to participate in a hands-on event. Then you’ll see some of the latest designs and meet the students behind them.

Science on Tap: Eat, Drink and Talk Science. Thanks to the continued support of UNM, Explora and the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History.
