Chemistry ShortsTM communicating the breadth & depth of chemistry’s impact on humankind
The Chemistry ShortsTM series shows the vital role the chemical sciences play in the biggest issues facing the world. Each film is accompanied by a lesson plan to integrate the science behind these innovations into the classroom.
with Hal Alper, University of Texas at Austin, and Frances Arnold, the California Institute of Technology
Our world faces climate, economic, and sustainability challenges that we don’t yet have the tools to fix. The nine-minute film “Driving Reactions” explores how directed evolution and the chemical sciences are creating some of these new tools.
Other Films in the Series:
with Meagan Mauter, Stanford University; David Sedlak, UC Berkeley; and William Tarpeh, Stanford University
Direct Air Capture & The Future of Climate Change
with Christopher Jones, Georgia Institute of Technology
Global climate change is one of the most important challenges of our time, and chemists and chemical engineers are at the forefront of this effort. One especially promising technology is Direct Air Capture.
