Coe-Brown students work with UNH professor

Students taking introductory biology and introductory physical science classes have recently had the opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary collaboration featuring student designed experiments exploring calorimetry of food, connections to energy use in the human body, research into biological sources of fuel production, and research into the production of biodiesel using corn products, which led to classroom debate on the pros and cons of using biodiesel. As a result of this collaboration, students had a unique opportunity to experience an in-class field trip, with Dr. Nan Yi, professor of chemical engineering, at the University of New Hampshire as a culminating activity.
