K-12 Outreach on Carbon Capture:  Chalk from CO2

Co-located with the Carbon Management Technology Conference 2013 in Alexandria, VA on Oct. 20, 2013, this hands-on workshop featured Tony Butterfield from the University of Utah presenting teaching modules on carbon capture designed for high school teachers to help their students understand more about carbon capture. The modules, “Carbon Capture in Water” and “Carbon Captured Chalk,” were developed by Alissa Park, Columbia University, in association with the NSF-funded Research Coordination Network on Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (RCN-CCUS)

Prof. Butterfield also presented the modules for over 45 high school students at the outreach session at AIChE’s 2013 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA.  Read a ChEnected blog post about that session here.  To view Butterfield’s presentation, click here.  Additionally, Butterfield and the University of Utah Department of Chemical Engineering have many other teaching modules on various subjects that can be viewed here.
