The mission of GLBRC Education & Outreach is to inform a variety of audiences about bioenergy research, energy concerns, and sustainability issues affecting our planet. Our goal is to broaden the understanding of current issues in bioenergy for the general public, undergraduate students, and educators.
“Teachers know when they’re teaching old science and students really know when it’s not contemporary. Great Lakes Bioenergy has a contemporary project.”John Greenler, Outreach Director, Great Lakes Bioenergy
