Explore history of Clean Air Act at SC Wednesday @ Sheridan College
Dec 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery will host a lecture on “Clean Air — Then and Now: The Role of Catalysts and Computers” on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.

The lecture will take a retrospective look at the reasons for the enactment of the 1970 Clean Air Act, which led to the use of catalytic converters as standard equipment on all American cars produced since 1974.

Today, exhaust emissions from our cars are 98 percent lower than they were in the early 1970s. Which would not have been possible without the co-development of catalyst and computer science. The lecture will include examples of how the automotive industry could match scientific advances in chemistry and electronics to accomplish what was thought impossible 40 years ago. Robert McDowell will present the lecture.

McDowell graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Villanova University while working in the research and development group of Johnson Matthey, the largest automotive catalyst company. He was part of the team that brought the first commercial three-way catalyst from concept into production and has manufactured emission control catalyst on four continents. He currently advises a diverse set of clients working in the R&D and prototyping areas, including lithium ion batteries, biofuels, precious metal recycling and emission control catalysts.

SC to host presentation on fossil discovery @ Sheridan College
Mar 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery lecture series will feature a presentation titled “Grasslands to Well Pad — Fossil Discovery During Construction Monitoring” on March 8 at 7 p.m.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Paleontologists from SWCA Environmental Consultants conducted initial surveys for a proposed well pad development in eastern Wyoming. The survey area was nearly entirely vegetated, and it presented few bedrock exposures. Though sparse, observed fossils consisted of heavily weathered bone fragments. A year later a paleontologist was on site full time to monitor ground disturbing activities.

Initial discoveries included isolated skeletal elements from hadrosaur and ceratopsian dinosaurs and turtles. Then three closely associated bones were exposed in a channel sandstone horizon. An exploratory excavation revealed that the elements were really one specimen — a partially complete skull of cf. Triceratops horridus.

Because this project followed proper mitigation protocol, a new specimen of Triceratops and associated geographic and stratigraphic data will be available for study.

Georgia Knauss, who will give the presentation, is the paleontology lead at SWCA Environmental Consultants based in Sheridan; and works as a mitigation paleontologist.

Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.
