A Service Learning Project on Aluminum Recycling—Developing Soft Skills in a Material and Energy Balances Course

Christy Wheeler West

Abstract


This paper describes a project carried out in a sophomore chemical engineering course, in which students studied the energetic differences between refining and recycling aluminum. They worked in teams to prepare a presentation about the importance of aluminum recycling to a lay audience. The project reinforced classroom learning and provided an opportunity to develop the professional skills addressed in the ABET student outcomes criterion.
