John Peck, professor of geology and environmental science at The University of Akron, will present the lecture “Dam Science on the Cuyahoga River,” at noon on Feb. 14, 2013, in the Alumni Heritage Room of Teachout-Price.
The lecture, sponsored by the Center for Deciphering Life’s Languages and Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature, is part of the Science Reads program. Science Reads is a Northeast Ohio community reading program based on Paul Greenberg’s book Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food.
“The Science Reads program is one way to bring the public back into discussions at a time when that is absolutely critical. (Science asks questions like:) What are we going to do with respect to climate change? How are we going to feed a world of 9 billion humans?” said Brad Goodner, director of the Center for Deciphering Life’s Languages. “These questions and many others impact all of us.”
