Bridging today’s problem solvers to tomorrow’s clean energy future

The Bioenergy Research and Education Bridge Program (BRIDGES) hosts and supports multiple events and webinars that bring together educators, students, and organizations across the United States. The case study-based bioenergy education curriculum is intended to be taught in diverse settings, including high schools, technical and community colleges, and universities. 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.
