Georgia Southern hosts Science on Tap in Savannah on Nov. 14

Chemistry will be the topic of the next Science on Tap lecture, which will be held at Savannah Coffee Roasters in Savannah on Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. Richard Wallace, Ph.D., a chemistry professor on the Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus, will present, “The Connection Between Rubber, Goldenrod, Paint, & Soybeans: Two Stories from Agricultural Chemistry.”

The lecture would be of interest to anyone who is curious about chemical manufacturing, agricultural products and history, said Wallace.

“Science on Tap is a good venue for people to attend because the talks are given from a broad, general perspective,” Wallace said. “You don’t need a degree in chemistry to get something useful from the talk.”

Science on Tap is a monthly lecture series on various scientific subjects, hosted in both Savannah and Statesboro. The series is sponsored by the College of Science and Mathematics, as well as the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and the Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education on the Statesboro Campus.  Lectures are free and community attendance is encouraged.
