S14333: Science and Economics of Climate Change in Splash 2020 (Nov. 14 - 15, 2020)
Climate change is always in the news, but what is the science behind how carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, and other human activities impact our climate? What are the economic drivers behind pollution and how successful has environmental policy been in addressing climate issues? This class will give you a unique understanding of the climate change issue from a scientific and economic perspective. We’ll explore the acid rain problem and discuss what the success of the Acid Rain Program in the late 1900s century says about how different policy instruments can address environmental issues.


S14334: How Does Global Warming Work? An Introduction to The Greenhouse Effect and Other Mechanisms in Splash 2020 (Nov. 14 - 15, 2020)

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.
