The Innovate to Mitigate Challenge is open to all middle school and high school students in the U.S. and around the world, so share the word. Visit our media toolkit page for posts that you can share on Facebook and Twitter.
The following ideas were submitted by early adopters in a previous round of the Innovate to Mitigate challenge:
- Miniaturized “scrubbers” that remove dissolved CO2 from ocean water
- “Wave generators” that work horizontally not vertically for use in rivers
- Using recycled tubing and solar focusing to create biochar more efficiently
This Promising Ideas section should give you an idea of what's possible, and hopefully can spark new ideas of your own!
