Science Showcase at Ponce City Farmers Market
Georgia Tech will be at Ponce City Farmers Market one Tuesday a month from June to November. Graduates in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and faculty from the Georgia Tech School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences will share with customers and passersby science about our planet that they could apply to their daily lives.
Climate Change is the last of six programs making up "Science Showcase at Ponce City Farmers Market." Kim Cobb, professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences will talk about her research and its implications on climate change.
If you are in the farmers' market, you can ask Kim Cobb how burning fossil fuels leads to global warming and what climate science says we can expect in the coming years, decades, and centuries.
Following are the topics for "Science Showcase at Ponce City Farmers Market" through November, as well as the Georgia Tech volunteers:
- June 12, Disaster Preparedness, Tiegan Hobbs
- July 3, Urbanization & the Water Cycle, Shannon Owings
- Aug. 7, Underwater Robots & Ice Sheets, Ben Hurwitz and Dan Dichek
- Sept. 4, DIY Meteorology Kits, Louisa Barama and Miguel Neves
- Oct. 2, Dark Skies Protection, Elizabeth Spiers
- Nov. 6, Climate Change, Kim Cobb
The showcase is an initiative of Ph.D. student Tiegan Hobbs. Georgia Tech's science presence at Ponce City Farmers Market was made possible by Hobbs's collaboration with its market manager, Stephanie Luke.
