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 some of the top technologies today. He digs into how he works with the kids, saying the FLEx (Forward Learning Experience) program focuses on how do we see things and how do we make things.

They also discuss:

  • Seeing: Introducing kids to virtual reality and providing them an experience they may not have otherwise.
  • Making: Additive manufacturing and the rise of 3D printers.
  • The importance of agency and making an impact in the world.
