Let's start showing carbon who's boss.
LEVERETT LIBRARY THEATER
28 DeWolfe St, Cambridge, MA 02138
Interested in carbon capture? Come work with experts and learn more about high impact research topics that one day might save the world.
Assemble a team or ride solo! Fill out a quick questionnaire so we can learn a bit about you, your team, and whatever ideas you might already have!
Don’t have a team yet? Looking for teammates? No problem! We will pair you up with a group.
Step 2: Get Inspired
Whether you’re interested in exploring new approaches for an established technology or writing a research proposal for an unproven concept, your first stop should be the Frontier CDR Knowledge Gap Database. This resource is a repository of open questions and high value research topics in the field of carbon dioxide removal.
Not familiar with sustainability or carbon removal? No problem! We will be hosting office hours with experts in the field to help jumpstart your journey starting on April 14th, the first day of the event. Want to learn more before then? Check out these quick links to learn more about different pathways for Carbon Dioxide Removal:
Step 3: INNOVATE
Over the course of three days you and your team will dive into the world of CDR. Your job is to come up with the most creative climate solution you can based on real world examples—drawn from the scientific literature and current industrial applications—and write a research proposal to study its efficacy. For example, your solution may be to use genetically modified potatoes that develop a durable skin that will lock away carbon for thousands of years. In this example, your written submission should take the form of a research proposal, and outline previous research that supports the core tenets of your idea.
Step 4: Present
You and your team will give a short presentation on your climate solution to our panel of judges. There will be four winning teams! A grand prize of $200, and three smaller prizes of $100 will be awarded to the winning teams.
Sound like fun?
