NCERC Hosts ‘Fueling Fun’ Workshop for Local Girl Scouts

Submitted by on May 23, 2018 – 5:04 pmNo Comment

(Southern Illinois University Edwardsville/Ethanol Producer Magazine)  More than 50 Brownies, Juniors, and parents from the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois learned about the benefits of biofuels, fermentation, and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) during the “Fueling Fun” biofuels workshop at the National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

From fermentation in Amish Friendship Bread to a tour of the Center’s 24,000 pilot plant and a Shark-Tank style badging session, all of the Workshop’s had a common theme: women and science.

Funding for the workshop was provided by the Meridian Society, an organization of women dedicated to supporting  SIUE programs through philanthropy and financial education, through a grant proposal titled “Solving the Equality Equation: Providing Hands-On Workshops in STEM.”

“Not only did the girls learn about careers, they also learned that fermentation is the pathway to the bioeconomy, and that pathway begins right here at NCERC. I hope we see some of these young women back here in a few years as undergraduates.”  READ MORE
