This work pretends that performing a webquest powerpoint tutorial, students can acquire the ability to design/select basic elements that compose a refrigeration system by calculating different parameters and query several catalogs from different manufacturers (Refrigeration links considered important in real industry). We also believe that this initiative may be applied to any other installation design subject or in other subjects.

This educational exercise is composed by an exercise that consists in a webquest powerpoint tutorial that must be accomplished by food technology students. This tutorial explains fundamental thermodynamics concepts required in order to design a proposed refrigeration installation. This webquest tutorial continually refers to free software from different refrigeration companies, where students can calculate and select refrigeration components in order to design cooling installations. This familiarizes students with computer applications closer to industrial reality than mere theoretical calculations.
