Event Description

Connect Your College Students to Tomorrow’s Clean Energy FutureThe BETO BRIDGES workshop will take place May 15-17, 2024 at Argonne National Laboratory

This engaging workshop will introduce educators to national laboratory research in bioenergy. Participants will explore how the Bioenergy Research and Education Bridge (BRIDGES) Program, a case study-based bioenergy education curriculum, can be effectively incorporated into the classroom and help to educate students on this clean energy STEM pathway.


The case study-based bioenergy education curriculum is intended to be taught in diverse settings including community colleges, technical colleges, universities, and upper-level high school classrooms. Created by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO) in partnership with Argonne National Laboratory and Idaho National Laboratory, BRIDGES provides background and foundational materials for students and instructors with no prior bioenergy knowledge.


Join us for three exciting days of information, exploration, expert talks, and tours of Argonne National Laboratory! New this year: A sneak peek into the next two case studies coming down the pike!
