COD Hosts Free STEMinar Featuring Argonne National Lab’s Andrew Jansen March 9
By Mike McKissack
College of DuPage will host a free STEMinar event “Development of High-Energy Density Lithium-Ion Batteries at Argonne National Laboratory” with Argonne National Lab’s Dr. Andrew Jansen at 7 p.m. Friday, March 9, in the Health and Science Center, Room 1234, on the College’s Glen Ellyn campus, 425 Fawell Blvd.
During his talk, Jansen, a chemical engineer in Argonne’s Chemical Sciences and Engineering Division, will share processes and results stemming from research and the development of high-energy density lithium-ion batteries. At Argonne, Jansen plans and conducts goal-oriented research and development on advanced battery systems; providing technical guidance and program direction. His work includes evaluating developmental cells/batteries with an emphasis on cell chemistry and hardware development for lithium-based battery chemistries for transportation applications.

The STEMinar Series at College of DuPage offers free talks throughout the fall and spring semesters covering a variety of topics related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
The next STEMinar, “Great Steps in the History of Life: The Origin of Limbed Vertebrates” by Curator and Professor at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University Dr. Ted Daeschler, is Friday, April 20.
In addition, the College also welcomes renowned physicist Brian Greene for “Chasing Reality: Einstein’s Dream and Beyond” on Sunday, March 4, at the McAninch Arts Center.
The College’s STEM offerings continue in April at the third annual STEM-CON, the College’s interactive, family-based celebration of all things STEM. The free event features a broad range of activities and events, including expert speakers, hands-on experiences and interactive exhibits and STEM experts such as keynote speaker Emily Graslie, writer, producer, co-creator and host of The Brain Scoop, an educational YouTube channel that explores behind-the-scenes of The Field Museum.
The goal of STEM at College of DuPage is to enhance the quality of STEM instructional and outreach programs and to help current and future students prepare for careers in STEM fields. COD offers a broad range of academic programs designed to provide students with the educational background and training needed to successfully pursue an advanced degree or career in STEM.
