Lisa Serfling's Honors Biology classes participated in week long K-12 Algae STEM Initiative by the Algae Foundation to educate and excite students on the power of algae as a sustainable solution for several of the dilemmas facing our global community. For high school students, the goal is to utilize algae as a tool to effectively meet the four disciplines of STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics – in an interdisciplinary and applied approach through real-world applications. Students developed experiments, analyzed data, measured growth, and made connections on how algae production has a positive impact on the global environment. Students learned about the essential need for sustainable resources, current concerns about future protein shortages, and how algae can be a game-changing resource in developing countries.
