The Greenest Green Energy is only one of the many sessions at the Alumni weekend. Saturday, September 23, 10:00am – 11:00am

Get your hands dirty and discover how algae is rising to the challenge to combat climate change. This is a family-friendly event. More details HERE.

Think that green slime at the bottom of the fish tank is gross? Think again — algae could be the future of clean energy. Discover first-hand how algae is rising to the challenge to combat climate change. In this interactive session, learn how this green sludge captures and converts CO2 to generate a green and cost-effective source of energy.

This session is a showcase of the Fixing the Atmosphere school program created by Solar Biocells, an innovative bioengineering startup that’s based out of UCalgary’s Energy Bioengineering Group.
