“Bioplastics” by EIE (STEM Career)

This video by EIE is a great way to have students see professionals work in their STEM fields to help their world become a better place. Students will learn science concepts such as bioplastics, molecules (monomer and polymer), and biodegradation. A biochemical engineer explains how his team engineered biodegradable plastic by having bacteria convert glucose from plants. Students can see how the concepts and skills from biology, chemistry and engineering are used for a real-world application.
