CARTERSVILLE, Ga. -- A University of Georgia professor and a group of engineering students are working to solve a pressing problem -- keeping life-sustaining foods like milk chilled in developing countries.
Dr. William Kisaalita will lecture on his refrigeration work in Uganda this week at Tellus Science Museum. He will be joined by student Ryan Brush, who is helping him with his research and experiments.
Their talk will be Friday, May 16 at 7 p.m. It is free for Tellus members and included in admission price for non-members.
Attendees will learn how Kisaalita, Brush and others spent three weeks in Kampala, Uganda, working on a prototype cooler that does not need electricity to function. The cooler will give Ugandans access to milk, which will limit disease and make for a healthier population.
Tellus Science Museum is located at 100 Tellus Driver just off Interstate 75 in Cartersville.
