Discovery Virtual Learning Experience

Biofuels

Creative Discovery Museum’s alternative energy lesson comes straight to your classroom in real time and offers your students the opportunity to interact with our instructor as they complete lab activities that cover concepts related to biofuels. We’ll ship everything you need for 25 students to complete this 50 minute lesson. All you need to supply is a pitcher of water and eager students. They will explore ocean acidification, cell walls, the carbon cycle, photosynthesis, non-food fuel crops and other concepts related to the production of sustainable sources of ethanol.

To take advantage of these lessons, classrooms need:

  • Distance learning equipment with adequate Internet connection and speed OR
  • A computer with a video camera (either built in or external) and a copy of SKYPE, or Facetime installed

Each 50-minute lesson includes a kit containing a teacher packet and enough materials for up to 25 students to participate, which will arrive by mail prior to the lesson.
