I enjoy engaging with people and younger generations to spread the word of science, reason why I have been a STEM Ambassador since February 2017.
Recycling Carbon is an interactive exhibition aimed at demonstrating the concept of carbon capture and utilisation by using BunchemsTM as atomic models. It goes through three stages: first is the Power Station, where fuel (methane for simplicity) and oxygen are combined to generate energy, carbon dioxide and water; second is the Lucky Dip, where carbon dioxide must be retrieved from a box full of packaging peanuts (representing the atmosphere); third is the Catalyst, where carbon dioxide is combined with hydrogen (produced by water splitting using energy from renewable sources) to produce methane, thus closing the cycle.
