About the Program

Bioenergy and Bioproducts Education Programs provided professional development and hands-on teaching tools for educators (grades 6 - 16, in-service and pre-service teachers and extension educators) who want to learn and teach about the Bioenergy systems currently in use and under development in the United States.

Through funding from the US Department of Agriculture, each one-week workshop provided scholarship packages to 10 accepted applicants per site. Educators in these workshops left with the ability to teach basic bioenergy and bioproducts concepts to students and other teachers in their school using hands-on activities provided by the program. The program provided school year follow-up support to Master Teachers using the kits and activities at their school.
