Glamour and Grunge: Secrets of an Industrial Chemist

Ever wonder what a day in the life of a scientist is like? Far from bubbling potions and bizarre discoveries, it is more likely to involve climbing tall industrial towers or delving into pits to inspect equipment, navigating the slippery slopes of a sludge encrusted waste plant or uncovering the secrets of how your favorite soft drink is made. The back corners of the local manufacturing plant could be a great place to set your next mystery or romance. Learn telling details that add realism and tidbits that make the lab setting sizzle from Ph.D. chemist, multi-published science author, and U.S. Patent holder, Kelle Z. Riley as she shares her knowledge of science and love of writing in this informative seminar.
