Prof. Shishir Chundawat and Rutgers rising senior (Mr. Benjamin Esposito from Rutgers CBE Graduating Class of 2018) organized and led an enzyme engineering/biofuels focussed workshop this summer with over 45 local New Jersey high school student participants. Students learned what it means to be a chemical/biochemical engineer and specifically focussed on a hands-on experiment where they measured the catalytic activity of cellulase enzymes hydrolyzing cellulosic biomass to facilitate biofuels production.
