The 2017 BioenergizeME Infographic Challenge kicks off today! This year’s theme is Exploring the Future American Energy Landscape. The US Department of Energy’s Bioenergies Technologies Office is asking 9th- through 12th-grade student teams to use technology to research, interpret, apply, and then design an infographic that responds to one of five research topic areas selected for 2017:
History of Modern Bioenergy
Bioenergy and Society
Workforce and Education
Science and Technology
Even better, all of the tools necessary to integrate this challenge into your curriculum or offer it as an after-school activity are provided!
To date no past submissions have come from NC – let’s change this!
To be considered for the competition, teams must register by Feb. 3, 2017 and infographics must be submitted by March 3, 2017.
Check out the 2016 award winning infographics on cellulosic ethanol, algae as a biofuel and energy from biomass. You can view all previous winning infographics here. One NC teacher remarked that she would incorporate these infographics into her AP Environmental Science class by having her students review and critique the infographics to decide which they would fund for further development.
