Climate Science Series: Clean Energy from Greener Crops. March 9, 2021. KBS K-12 Partnership
From Kara Lynn Haas on March 9th, 2021
Workshop 4: Clean Energy from Greener Crops
Tuesday, March 9, 2021 from 4 – 5 pm Eastern
Dr. Carolina Cordova, Agronomist, postdoctoral researcher, Great Lakes Bioenergy Research, Michigan State University, will present Clean Energy from Greener Crops and introduce us to current biofuel possibilities and research.
This is a series of 4 online workshops on Climate Science designed to build confidence in teaching climate change. Using the enRoads Climate Interactive’s focus areas as inspiration, we have invited MSU scientists to share about current research in the areas of climate science, carbon sequestration in agricultural systems, land use patterns, and biofuels. These workshops will introduce the teachers to climate science, and discuss the relevance of topics like agriculture, land use, and biofuels in climate science research. Each hour-long workshop will include interactive activities and a presentation by an expert. See details about each of the workshops below. Additionally, these workshops are designed to help teachers learn to leverage the enRoads Climate Interactive in their classrooms. Participants will also get access to a curated set of resources, including lesson plans, that they can then use in their classrooms.
