Bioenergy Farm Game  August 1st, 2014

Teachers, we have been dormant for a while so we could create amazing activities for you and your students.  The teacher workshop is just a few weeks away and we wanted to give you a preview of one of the great activities you can use in your classroom.  To start, we found this Bioenergy Farm Game from Great Lakes that would be perfect for a high school classroom.  Students will take the perspective of a bioenergy farmer to learn the benefits and drawbacks of crops, like corn and switchgrass, that can be turned into fuel. This game allows students to see where and how money is made and the effects of their actions on the environment. Check back for more activities that will be presented at the teacher workshop.  See you there!
