Waubonsee college to host scientific series, ‘Asset Earth,’ beginning Sept. 24

SUGAR GROVE – This month, Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove will host the “Asset Earth” series, which will explore newly discovered ecosystems as part of the college’s ongoing community education series.

The series will begin with “Exploring ‘New’ Environments on Earth” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, at the Sugar Grove campus auditorium, located at Route 47 Waubonsee Drive.

The free event will be presented by world-renowned geologist and polar explorer, Ross Powell, according to a news release.

Powell, a research professor of geology and environmental geosciences at Northern Illinois University, will talk about new discoveries on Earth and their implications, the release states. Powell will share with the audience how he and other scientists conduct research at the coldest place on the planet, Antarctica.

In November, the science behind dating and relationships will be revealed when Waubonsee biology instructor Justin Hoshaw presents “What Science Can Teach You About Dating, Love and Sex (That Sex Ed Didn’t).”

“Asset Earth” is a series of presentations by scientific experts on current scientific thought and events. The topics and speakers are selected to present ideas and concepts about the planet in an entertaining manner, states the release.

No registration is required. Events are free and open the public.
