Students discover their inner scientist at Mongstad

Sep 29 2014

A group of students from Radøy Secondary School near Bergen got to test out life as a scientist as they took part in a CO2degees Education Workshop at TCM.

The students took an ‘energetic look at energy’ – with  an interactive lesson on climate change and the need to limit CO2 emissions, followed by an afternoon of fun experiments helping them to learn more about carbon capture and storage technology.

The students were then challenged to communicate all they had been learning and demonstrate their favourite experiments on camera. The demonstrations will be used in Regina, Canada in just a few weeks’ time, to teach students at the SaskPower CCS Education workshops more about low-carbon technologies. 

Kirsty Anderson from the Global CCS institute led the education workshop and experiments. "Through our CO2degrees Education program we are trying to engage students around the world to learn more about CO2, energy and low-carbon technologies like CCS. The Radøy Secondary School students did such a great job demonstrating their favourite experiments – I think they discovered some serious skills in science communication!"

Lack of awareness and understanding are recognised as key barriers to the deployment of low-carbon energy technologies like carbon capture and storage (CCS), so the Global CCS Institute are making a conscious effort to improve access to the best education and outreach materials to help engage people around the world in discussions around low-carbon energy.

The results of these education and outreach activities and student Challenges, will be published on  over the coming months.
