This project started when Anna Hernandez, a sophomore from Whitney Young HS, approached her teacher for help with a science fair project. That initial contact spawned a larger scale Whitney Young biodiesel team, who contacted MIE in the Fall of 2010. The UIC MIE department has donated time and space in one of our research labs to encourage the WY project. The project has been featured previously in UIC NEWS, on a local radio station, and also went on display at the Museum of Science and Industry. Brian Sievers, the faculty mentor for WY students, is an MIE alumnus.
