"Students at Musab bin Omair Independent Secondary School for Boys, in Doha, Qatar worked with their peers in Immaculata Catholic School in North Carolina, USA to investigate converting food waste into electricity. They designed a bioreactor that converted methane released from decomposing food into electricity. Students shared their project at environmental events in Doha and are planning to continue develop it to power at least one classroom in their school.
This student project was created as part of Connecting Cultures, Exploring Science 2014-15, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the United States and Qatar. It is run by Global Nomads Group, and funded by the U.S. Department of State in Doha, Qatar."
