RFA Develops ‘Ethanol in the Classroom’ Program for Students

January 25, 2018


WASHINGTON - Consumers are never too young to learn about the benefits of ethanol. The Renewable Fuels Association has developed an "Ethanol in the Classroom" course, providing a fun and interactive way for students to learn about the renewable fuel. The e-Learning program is broken down into three levels: Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12. After selecting the appropriate level, students can choose a vehicle that runs on ethanol and then navigate through four stops: An overview of what is ethanol; ethanol's environmental benefits; ethanol's economic impact; and the overall use of ethanol. At each stop, students learn about ethanol and complete activities to see how much they have learned. Students earn badges after completing each stop. "We wanted to create a fun platform for children and young adults to learn about ethanol's numerous benefits," said RFA Vice President of Industry Relations Robert White. "This program takes them on a journey to showcase how ethanol works and positively affects the world around them. They are tomorrow's drivers. Education is key and we want to make sure everyone, young and old, knows about the environmental, economic and energy security benefits of this renewable fuel."
