Algae Open House

26 Apr

Honors freshmen students enrolled in Prof. J. Houston Miller‘s Scientific Reasoning and Discovery course will present a showcase of their progress throughout the year.  We’ll see their research and examples of their experiments.

In this section of Scientific Reasoning and Discovery, students harvest biofuel from algae.  All of their scientific study is done in the context of creating a biofuel start up company, so the students learn how to solve real problems in the real world.  Several students have won funding for their class projects from the Sigelman Undergraduate Research Enhancement (SURE) award.  Last semester, the class and students were featured in the Planet Forward film festival.   It’s cool stuff!

Everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to come check it out!  Poke your head in to see their work.

The “algae open house” will be in the UHP Club Room at 714 21st St on Friday, April 29th from 3pm to 4:30pm.
