The ethanol journey has four stops:

What is Ethanol?

Ethanol’s Environmental Benefits

Ethanol’s Economic Impact

Ethanol’s Use

Each stop delivers age-appropriate instruction on each topic. Students are rewarded for completing knowledge assessments, and immediate feedback reinforces learning objectives.

The eLearning journey begins with a quick stop at a fuel pump to fill the vehicle with ethanol-blended gasoline. Students then learn the science of producing ethanol from plants. Next take a scenic drive through rolling hills and forests to Stop 2 for a lesson on the environmental benefits of using ethanol. A drive through rural farmland yields Stop 3, where students learn about ethanol’s role in job creation and strengthening the U.S. economy. Finish the eLearning journey at Stop 4 to find out about ethanol use in everyday activities. Students end their trip with a final true-false, no-stress Ethanol Challenge to reinforce what they’ve learned in the course.
