Grand Engineering Challenges  October 3rd, 2014

As promised at the teacher workshop, we will be posting an activity every month that addresses the fourteen grand challenges in engineering. This month we decided to conquer the challenge of developing carbon sequestration methods. In this activity students will learn what their carbon footprint is and how many acres of corn it would take to offset their footprint. This activity challenges students to think of other feasible methods to soak up the carbon humans put into the atmosphere. Check out how to balance your carbon footprint!

We have a carbon sequestration activity already posted for September, which lets students think about their carbon footprint. For October we went back to making scientific discovery tools, but instead made a scribble machine.  This video previews what you can expect from the activity that will be posted later this month.
