Join Ev (they/them) for a short investigative presentation about the process of breaking down polystyrene waste into resin. Ev will walk you through their material exploration of recycling styrofoam and some of the possibilities and limitations of the styrofoam once resinified. We can then have a short discussion to workshop ways to safely adapt the process for future projects. 

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
