CEU TYPE: Technical
WEBINAR TYPE: Technical
Summary: Recently, the United States has been plagued by an unexpectedly devastating organism: the zebra mussel. Many detrimental problems are caused by the mussel's unique super glue- a fiber called a byssus thread. This presentation will explore areas of biology, chemistry, material science, and environmental science in a showcase of novel techniques developed for combating zebra mussels.
Presenter: Nicholas Ieremciuc is a student at Niles West High School in Skokie, Illinois. As a researcher, his focus has been on using biochemical investigation to explore new ways of approaching zebra mussel management. As a frequent science fair competitor and recent presenter at WATERCON 2016, he hopes to introduce ideas that will help the Midwest—and the entire country—fight off invasive mussels.
