A few months ago I was approached to attend a National STEM Teacher Workshop. At first, I didn’t know what topics were going to be included but it sounded like an excellent opportunity to grow professionally. As the workshop approached, I learned that the workshop was called Bioenergy and Bioproducts Education Programs. When thinking about the title of the workshop, I really didn’t know what I was getting into. I had heard of biodiesel previously and figured I had a general idea of what bioenergy and bioproducts were, but in reality, I’m a complete novice.
