Growth Energy, in partnership with the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE), has developed a one-of-a-kind biofuels curriculum aimed at educating high school students to the world of biofuels. The curriculum is the first industry-supported biofuels curriculum that provides students a guided in-classroom experience and will offer ag educators the tools needed to provide students with an array of technical skills and historical knowledge in biofuels.

What is in the biofuels curriculum?

  • Learn the historical, political, and technological aspects of the relationship between biofuels and agriculture
  • Conduct STEM-based experiments and lab work on ethanol’s distillation, combustion, and energy content
  • Access downloadable presentations to help student’s visualize the impact and history of ethanol

Agricultural educators considering including this curriculum into their lesson plan for the semester will have access to a number of resources to help supplement the activities provided within the curriculum. These include helpful presentation slides on the history, technology, and policy that make biofuels important for the rural economy, and assessment tools that educators can use to assess and track student progress. Additionally, each activity concludes with a short self-assessment meant to encourage discussion and identify key takeaways that students can reflect on.

Hitting the road for the long weekend? Choose higher blends of biofuels to save money at the pump! E15 has saved consumers up to $.60 per gallon over the last several months. That's a meaningful difference. https://t.co/xaIvK4eY9q

🔘 Outdated and inaccurate projections for future crop prices. 🔘 Double counted and incorrect emissions results. 🔘 Magnificent changes in land use that are overestimated. The anti-biofuel study from Lark is found to be problematic and misleading → bit.ly/3lJcxs3
