In 2006, the National Academy of Engineering charged a panel of experts with identifying the major scientific and engineering problems to be solved during the 21st century. This group ultimately defined 14 grand challenges.

Our series continues as we explore five additional challenges: (1) making solar energy more affordable, (2) providing energy from fusion, (3) developing carbon sequestration methods, (4) managing the nitrogen cycle, and (5) restoring and improving urban infrastructure.

Stay tuned as we plan to discuss the final five challenges next session!
