Course Description

When plastic items are thrown in the trash, they can quickly pile up in landfills and create a big mess! Students use their chemical engineering skills to explore problems created by traditional plastic materials and engineer bioplastics—plastics made from plant-based materials—as a potential solution to current plastic problems. Students will explore exciting new polymers that use environmentally friendly, biodegradable ingredients like corn, tapioca and even algae and their applications. Developed by Engineering is Elementary, Museum of Science Boston.
