Evnin Lecture-Tyrone Hayes
 What Rachel Carson started with Silent Spring, Tyrone Hayes continues through research on how chemical runoff impacts ecosystems and human health. He has spent his career translating a childhood love of frogs into research on how pesticides are impacting amphibians. He has also made enemies of chemical companies by connecting exposure to atrazine to cancer and reproductive problems in humans, especially farmworkers applying the pesticide to fields. In this Evnin Lecture, Dr. Hayes will speak about his career path and argue that we must translate environmental research into environmental justice.

Open to the Public
The Evnin Lectures were established with a gift from Anthony B. Evnin '62 to promote a broader and deeper understanding of the critical roles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in all aspects of human endeavor. Since 1991, the Council on Science and Technology has invited luminaries in the fields of STEM and science communication to explore topics of interest to a broad audience. These lectures are free and open to the public. 
Living at the Intersection Symposium
The Living at the Intersection Symposium (LIS) 2020 on April 16-17, 2020 will examine the topic of “Truth and Evidence” at the intersection of STEM and the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Through panels, presenters and showcased work of students and faculty, we will examine key questions such as
  • What is data and how is it collected and communicated in different disciplines?
  • What constitutes an evidence-based claim in various fields?
  • How are data and evidence interpreted. misinterpreted, understood, and misunderstood?
  • How do we overcome these difficulties?”
Our keynote speaker will be Dan Fagin, Pulitzer Prize winning author of the book,  Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation.
