One of the current grand challenges is meeting the global energy need in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. As a society, we will need to develop strategies that incorporate renewable energy in a sustainable fashion. This will require a combination of numerous things including new policy decisions, altering societal attitudes, and advancing technology and innovation. Therefore, teaching students to be environmentally literate, informed citizens has never been more important. In this session, participants are exposed to laboratory experiments centered on renewable energy concepts for different levels of chemistry courses. Lab experiments provide the perfect platform to introduce the ideas of current renewable energy technology and the idea of sustainability, while providing students with hands-on learning experiences and reinforcing topics currently being covered in the class.
