Biogas: A new way to fuel tomorrow's Education

Rows of green cabbage, banana trees and healthy cows lead the path to Stella Matutina Secondary School in Rwanda, where student Claudine Yankurije sits huddled over a gas flame. As she studies intently in her school's science laboratory, the flame not only helps her science experiment, but it also represents an innovative approach to energy. The flame is fuelled by her school's use of natural resources to create bio energy. "It's easier to learn by experiment in the biology lab,” she says. "The biogas that we harness here at our school really adds to our learning experience.”
