Our Students Learn by Teaching Others
Education & Outreach
The Dickinson College Biodiesel Program partners with different community and collegiate resources to spread the word about biofuels and alternative energy sources. Each year we offer a small-scale biodiesel lab with the Environmental Studies Department and frequent tours for a variety of audiences. This allows students to make small batches of fuel and gain some hands- on experience. In addition, the Biodiesel Program has participated in Farmers on the Square, Solstice Festival, and partnered with the JCC of Harrisburg to offer an educational program.
We encourage our students to attend professional meetings and conferences as much as possible to share and network with others in the biofuels production industry.
Visits and Tours
We welcome tour groups, conference calls, and basic educational consulting services to others interested in biodiesel production. Our program is run by students, and managed by the Center for Sustainability Education.
