With John Warner, cofounder of the field of green chemistry
How does the humble blackberry relate to a solar cell? Come find out as John Warner, cofounder of the field of green chemistry, shares his work to create more sustainable products and processes. A 30-minute workshop on Dye-Sensitized Blackberry Solar Cells will be included, where students will create their own solar cell using non-toxic materials and blackberry fruit as the dye, learning how solar cells are manufactured currently and how green chemistry research develops greener solar energy devices. (Workshop requires separate reservations.)
Funding is provided for Massachusetts schools by the Lowell Institute.
