The Microbial Fuel Cell as an Education Tool
Dewan, Alim; Van Wie, Bernard; Beyenal, Haluk; Lewandowski, Zbigniew
Chemical Engineering Education, v44 n2 p157-165 Spr 2010
Many chemical engineering programs offer courses from a variety of disciplines to teach their students multidisciplinary concepts, but often these courses lack appropriate tools for linking newly learned concepts to principles learned in the core courses. This paper describes our experience of incorporating a microbial fuel cell education module into a bioprocess engineering course, and its use in active, hands-on learning classroom exercises to teach multidisciplinary concepts in an integrated manner.
