Illinois Sustainable Technology Center seminars

For ISTC's 2012 SEI International E-waste Design Competition, students and recent graduates from around the world were invited to submit ideas by Nov. 1, 2012, for preventing the generation of e-waste or for the reuse of e-waste in new and useful products. As part of their entry, individuals or teams created YouTube videos highlighting their ideas. Jurors from industry, government, academia, and non-profit organizations judged the entries in two categories: E-Waste Prevention and E-Waste Reuse. The event grew out of a local event associated with an e-waste course taught by UI Professor William Bullock in 2009.  In 2010, the competition went international.and there have been entries from a number of countries worldwide.  The webinar will feature discussion of the competition and show videos of this year's winning entries and announcement of awards.

This seminar will be broadcast live and also archived on our website www.istc.illinois.edu for later viewing. If you cannot attend the event at ISTC, you may view the webinar live by registering at:
