This Project-Based Learning (PBL) lesson is originally designed for the STEM Capstone course at Athens Drive Magnet High School in Raleigh, NC. This course was created as the final project course for senior students in the high school’s STEM Energy and Sustainability Academy.

The curriculum for the course focuses on developing engineering mindsets and approaches to problem solving. This PBL is meant to apply those procedures to chemical looping research and development being completed at NC State University by Dr. Fanxing Li and his research team. The PBL begins by defining the problem of CO2 overproduction as a result of fossil fuel usage and ends with students designing their own chemical looping combustion power plant in an attempt to address the problem.
