Plastics in Education

This month Akron/Cleveland SPE will present Educator’s Night. One of our primary goals as SPE is to spread our knowledge of plastics to young engineers and students. Dr. Missi Zender‐ Sakach is a Science Consultant to over fifty school districts in the state of Ohio. Dr. Zender‐Sakach will fill us in on some of the joys and challenges associated with improving student knowledge of science, including plastics. We will also have several high school students from GlenOak High School to demonstrate a plastics recycling project they developed in class. It is wonderful to watch high school students get excited by the concepts of plastics engineering.
