Scientists at UW–Madison and around the world are working to find ways to make the fuels and products we currently source from petroleum from plants instead – and they’re studying how to do so in a way that is sustainable and economical. Join this session for a hands-on introduction to bioenergy research. Follow along at home or school as we set up a fermentation experiment with materials from your kitchen or yard to understand some of the very same puzzles researchers in the lab are studying.
