What you'll learn in this brainy class:

Full Course Name: Hormones gone Haywire! DIY Testing for Endocrine Disrupting Compounds

What EDCs (endocrine disrupting compounds) are in your food and water, how did they get there, and what are their effects?

In this workshop we will work with simple DIY tools to extract and identify EDCs using liquid samples from local waterways and the grocery store. We will be focusing specifically on estrogenic compounds that mimic estrogen (a sex hormone).

We will construct a simple Solid Phase Extraction apparatus that will allow us to collect these estrogenic compounds from sample liquids. In addition to this hands on activity, we will discuss the complex interrelationships between industrial agriculture and production, food systems, ecosystems, human bodies and the bodies of organisms that live in affected regions.

Please wear closed toed shoes for the lab safety protocol.
