The U.S. Department of Energy’s Bioenergy Technologies Office’s (BETO’s) “Invite a Bioenergy Expert” webinar series will provide an opportunity for students to learn more about using biomass—plant, algae, and organic waste material—to produce renewable fuels and everyday products like cosmetics, plastic bottles, cleaners, clothing, and much more. BETO Technology Manager Devinn Lambert will also share details about her current projects and help students understand how they can make the leap from the classroom to an exciting, rewarding STEM-based career.
