      Feed the World: Focus on Energy and Ethanol, Fall 2019

      Want to learn more about renewable fuel?  Take part in our renewable energy workshop at Global Impact STEM Academy. Participants will explore how the Ag industry is creating quality feed and fuel while helping the environment. These lessons address Ohio Science Standards in 7th and 8th grade science, Biology, Chemistry, and Environmental Science. How is ethanol creating quality feed and fuel for Ohio and around the world? Why is renewable ethanol important to our lives and the future? How can an ethanol coproduct, corn oil, be used to produce renewable fuel? How can agricultural careers impact our student's pathways? Network with industry and fellow educators, practice a variety of labs focused on renewable fuels, and connect agriculture to your classroom.  Here's the agenda:  Renewable diesel: create renewable diesel from corn oil, a coproduct of ethanol production.  Corn Fermentation in a Bag: engineering design activity focused on fermentation and ethanol production. Lunch: Industry experts discuss the importance of technology in agriculture as it relates to renewable energy and animal feed Ethanol: create a corn mash, perform nutrient testing, and distill ethanol.  Test renewable diesel and ethanol. Each participant will receive kit materials to perform corn fermentation, corn renewable diesel, corn mash and distillation labs in the classroom, along with bioboats that run on ethanol or renewable diesel! All expenses paid, including materials and food. CEU certificates provided (.7 CEUs/7 contact hours).  Sponsored by Ohio Corn & Wheat.
