Carbon 101 is the first in a series of day-long programs for anyone interested in learning more about the language and theory of carbon.
The morning session material answers these questions:
- What is carbon?
- Where is it found?
- What is its importance in our everyday lives?
- What is carbon footprint and how is it calculated?
- What is carbon management?
- What does it mean to be carbon neutral?
- And what is the basic science of climate change?
Carbon application: the afternoon session includes visits to working renewable energy sites. See carbon science in action—wind, biomass, photovoltaic, and solar.
Cost: $50 includes lunch and ground transportation from the Morris campus to renewable energy sites.
