Introduction to Chemical Engineering Reactor Analysis: A Web–Based Reactor Design Game
An approach to explain chemical engineering through a web-based interactive game design was developed and used with college freshman and junior/senior high school students. The goal of this approach was to demonstrate how to model a lab-scale experiment, and use the results to design and operate a chemical reactor. The game incorporates both technical and economic considerations, such as inherent market uncertainty. The procedure that was followed and the student feedback are presented.
