Sustainable Solutions: Bioenergy and Bioproducts

Finding renewable, sustainable sources of energy is critically important to our nation’s future. Through three hands-on activities, students explore how scientists are using plants, microbes, DNA/genetic research, and specialized processing techniques to produce specialized fuels and recyclable products. Free lessons are made possible by the Center for Bioenergy Innovation.

To take advantage of these lessons, classrooms need:
