Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Pete Evans, assistant professor, Iowa State University, talk about the future of work and if it will be driven by certain technologies. He says we need to recognize that things have to change as things change in time and it isn’t just the tools, it is how we think about employing the tools and how we solve the problems using these new capabilities.

They also discuss:

  • STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and how we have lost something in changing modern education.
  • The importance of letting kids tinker and discover.
  • A new curriculum that is wrapping around additive construction manufacturing space.
