This workshop offers hands-on activities, class discussions, and classroom-based applications to enhance students' understanding of BioEnergy. Participants will explore BioEnergy resources (including solid biomass, biogas, and liquid biofuels) and discuss the benefits and challenges of utilizing these sources compared with conventional fossil fuels. Through hands-on experiences this workshop will highlight how BioEnergy resources work and how Wisconsin is utilizing them. The workshop will include time for collaboration and lesson planning, and a selection of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can integrate relevant lessons right away. The workshop will be hosted by the University of Wisconsin Energy Institute and the Great Lakes BioEnergy Research Center. Recommended for teachers of grades 5-12.
