The National Student Leadership Conference (NSLC) visited JBEI on July 17. NSLC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, education organization which brings together high school students for fast-paced, high-level, interactive summer sessions. For a fifth year in a row JBEI and NSLC partnered to instruct students about the benefits and research behind biofuels and bioproducts, as well as discuss future careers in STEM. JBEI’s volunteers interacted with 82 students to provide them a motivating learning experience! The visits had the kind support of JBEI’s volunteers: Irina Silva, Jamie Meadows, Jessica Trinh, Jesus Barajas, Nurgul Kaplan and Tina Wang.
