Integrating bio-energy laboratory activities into a junior high school classroom

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study developed a bio-energy laboratory activity as well as an outline for evaluating student performance in the activity. The goal of the study was to design and implement a laboratory procedure and assist teachers in achieving the objectives of the activity. A total of 80 junior high school students went through a six-week laboratory activity. Students' understanding of bio-energy concepts was statistically increased after completing these activities, which effectively introduced students to bio-energy technology. The objective of the activities was for the students to gain an understanding of energy education, as well as a greater confidence in investigating, questioning and experimenting with renewable energy ideas.
