The presentation will summarize the unique partnership between EverCat Fuels, LLC in Isanti, and the chemistry, CNET and biology faculty at the college. The event also includes a tour of the bio-fuel demonstration site.
Building on a customized education model that includes teaching and contextualized learning efforts, the Chemistry, CNET and Biology faculty developed classroom materials that link real-world applications to the multifaceted bio-fuels industry. This partnership bridged a gap between Anoka-Ramsey, business and industry, and community members, while providing students with skills that can be applied directly to the bio-fuel industry.
Funding for the Building Collaborative Partnerships to Increase STEM Teaching and Learning project, was made available through a Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system faculty development grant to help prepare a bio-fuels industry workforce.
Reservations are not required but are requested. If you have questions about the presentation or the partnership, contact Melanie Waite- Altringer at 763-433-1327 or at
