EC.S00/ EC.S12: The goal of this special IAP Learning Opportunity is to provide participants with a “how to” decarbonization manual, along with experiential learning opportunities through workshop-activities and field trips to Net Zero buildings in the greater Boston area. Elements of this Learning Opportunity include: 1) how to calculate a carbon footprint of a person, building, campus, city, country, 2) learning the basic science and engineering of decarbonization 3) examining case studies of 4th and 5th Generation geothermal district energy systems, such as the 1st 100% net zero campus, Colorado Mesa University 4) taking a deep dive into a D-Lab, Geo@MIT student team + MIT Alumni for Climate Action proposal for “100% Decarbonization of MIT Campus by 2035 via 6th Generation Geothermal District Heating and Cooling” 5) several field trips to Net Zero Buildings in the greater Boston area.
