Lincoln Section Meeting

LINCOLN — Evidence-Based Interactions between Indoor Environmental

Factors and Their Effects on K-12 Student Achievement with

Dr. Lily Wang

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

Valentino’s, Buffet ($15)

Dr. Lily Wang will be presenting some of the results of her 4-year, EPA-funded research project that seeks to see what affect school environments have on student’s health and achievement. She has been working along-side Dr. Clarence Waters (UNL), Dr. Josephine Lau (UNL), and Jim Bovaird (UNL’s Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools) to measure acoustical, lighting, thermal, and air quality data in more than 200 Nebraska classrooms over time to establish how they affect student achievement and determine the relative significance of each environmental variable. This information is valuable in helping school districts with limited funds make informed decisions on where to make improvements to best impact student achievement and for the school design community to have a better understanding of how to better design for the benefit of its occupants.

Dr. Wang is a professor and Associate Dean for Graduate Programs and Faculty Development at UNL. She teaches several graduate-level acoustics classes in addition to serving as the Acoustical Society of America President for the 2018-2019 year.
