KS3-4: Can chemistry solve climate change with carbon capture?

Suitable for 11-18-year olds (secondary, middle and high schools), this article and accompanying activity sheet can be used in the classroom, in science clubs and at home.

This resource links to KS3 Chemistry, Earth and atmosphere; Design and Technology, Evaluate; *Geography, human and physical *and KS4 Chemistry, Earth and atmospheric science, but is also internationally relevant.

It can also be used as a careers resource and links to Gatsby Benchmarks:
Gatsby Benchmark 2: Learning from career and labour market information
Gatsby Benchmark 4: Linking curriculum learning to careers

The article includes a summary of a carbon capture project, an interview with chemical engineer Prof Chris Jones and an overview of chemical engineering.

The activity sheet includes discussion points - eight questions the students can answer in groups or individually. There are also links to other relevant resources from Science Buddies.
