Neighborhood Science: Plankton
Tuesday, November 26, 2019, 07:30pm - 08:30pm

Chase Rakowski (Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior Graduate Program)

“Plankton: the little alien-like creatures that might save us all”

Is that an alien? Or is it just an Earthling that’s totally different from anything you’ve ever seen? Welcome to the world of plankton, the tiny living things found in almost every bit of water on Earth. You might never realize they’re there, but just a handful of natural water contains astonishing numbers, and life as we know it wouldn’t be possible without them. What’s more, they may hold the key to solving some of our biggest problems. Come see these little water-“aliens” in action and find out how important they really are!

Q&A will follow the talk.

This event is held outside, so please dress for the weather and bring a chair or blankets to sit on.


Neighborhood Science, an offshoot of Science Under the Stars, presents family-friendly talks at Austin Public Library branches across Austin.

Location: Howson Branch Library, 2500 Exposition Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703
