Workshop: Healthy Materials

Tuesday Feb. 6, 2018 , 4:45 to 8 p.m.
Healthy Materials workshop

This workshop explores the impact of materials on human health in the interior environment. Richard Corsi, Professor and former Chair of CAEE, will discuss his research on indoor air pollutants. Gail Vittori, Co-Director of the Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems, will provide an overview of health-based criteria for building materials. A hands-on workshop led by Zach Hollandsworth of The Institute for Material Interpretation will follow; participants will build their own Arduino-powered indoor air quality (IAQ) monitor to take home. Participation is open to all UT students, faculty, and staff, but an RSVP is required. Email to secure your spot.
