CSG students developing game to teach children about carbon capture

At The University of Tulsa, the topic is at the center of efforts by a group of computer simulation and gaming (CSG) students to develop a CCUS education simulation. Under the mentorship of Akram Taghavi-Burris, TU’s CSG program coordinator, and with funding support from Chevron, the students are designing a city-building game for use in middle schools that will teach children about the environmental impacts of carbon emissions, various CCUS methods, and the associated costs.
