The Future of Cleantech Looks Bright

It has become an all too familiar comment that American students are falling behind the rest of the world in math and science.  But as we highlighted back in March, young scholars from across the country are showing the promise that the next generation of scientists hold.  President Obama highlighted Sara Volz at the White House Science Fair last week, to showcase the inspiring work she’s done to develop algae that produce higher yields of oil for biofuels.  For her efforts, she won Intel’s Science Talent Search and a $100,000 scholarship which she will use to attend MIT next fall.

At this year’s Algae Biomass Summit coming up in October, ABO will again highlight rising scientific stars with our Young Algae Research Awards.  With all the recent highlights we’ve had thus far from rising algae whiz kids, picking this year’s winner should prove no less challenging.
