A group of Cal Poly students and graduates are working to combat climate change with a carbon dioxide capturing device.
While the drought has prevented students from gaining practical experience, it hasn’t stopped students from wanting to learn by doing.
Cal Poly joined the Mathematic and Climate Change Research Network on Oct. 1. The analysis of ice core data is Cal Poly’s contribution to the network.
Eight Cal Poly students and alumni who attended the UN Global Climate Summit in Copenhagen were discouraged by the lack of political involvement, so they decided to implement change on a smaller scale.
