E13605: Intro to Chemical Engineering in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
It's easy to think of engineering as a super hands-on activity--mechanics working bandsaws, a string of connected breadboards, you name it. But there are plenty of engineering disciplines which require a more analytical approach. Chemical engineering is a premiere example - keeping a chemical plant running takes a huge amount of number crunching and modeling. Come learn about the basics of chemical engineering, some cool applications and research happening in the ChemE department at MIT, and see a real-world engineering problem worked through and analyzed.

S13616: How Does Global Warming Work? An Introduction to The Greenhouse Effect and Other Mechanisms in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
The Sun is constantly emitting radiation... but what happens after it reaches the Earth? Learn about the radiative processes that occur within our atmosphere to understand the mechanisms behind global warming.

M12959: Fractal Dimensions in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
What's a dimension anyway? How do we define an object's dimension? According to some crazy math dudes, we can define your brain to be in the 2.7th dimension! Find out more about dimensions and play with fractals in this short intro to noninteger dimensions!
