Twelve students from GlenOak High School of Canton, Ohio, will be on stage at the April 10 joint meeting of the Akron and Cleveland sections of the Society of Plastics Engineers, at the Hilton Hotel in Fairlawn, Ohio.
The high school students will run a lab making name tags from recycled milk and water jugs made of high density polyethylene. They will talk about the need to reuse plastics to make the world less dependent on plastic.
They also will show a video of their research and the process of making the name tags to show what they have been learning.
Missi Zender-Sakach, a science consultant to more than 50 school districts in Ohio, will address the joys and challenges of improving student knowledge of science, including plastics.
Social networking begins at 5:30. Dinner and the program follow at 6 p.m.
Member and guests pay $25. The cost for retirees is $20. Students pay $5. New members attending their first meeting get in free.
Submit a reservation by noon April 7, to [email protected] or call Gary Taylor at 330-419-4380.
