Adapting Hands-on Bioenergy Activities for an Alternative Online High School

Matt Hawkins, science teacher at Gull Lake Gateway Academy, MI, worked with research mentor Kay Gross at Kellogg Biological Station, engaging in a variety of research activities at the cropping system trials and working on bioenergy-related classroom activities to supplement online learning modules used at his alternative high school. By adapting existing GLBRC education materials and developing new modules, Matt created a portfolio of ten activities that can complement computer-based learning and engage students in relevant science and engineering practices.
