National Association of Agricultural Educators’ 2017 Convention

At the beginning of December, Communications Manager Meredith Kesler attended the National Association of Agriculture Educators’ (NAAE) 2017 Convention in Nashville, Tenn. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet agriculture teachers who are increasingly including information about ethanol and biofuels in their lesson plan. A highlight of the convention was watching a workshop group conduct a classroom experiment that compared the energy released and amount of pollution and emissions coming from kerosene and ethanol flames. Growth Energy also hosted a booth at the NAAE teachers’ reception, where educators could pick up copies of our fact sheets and hear more about biofuels in the classroom. It was fun to see so many excited teachers and talk to them about ag education! Don’t forget to save the date for #TeachAg Day 2018: September 20.
