PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A Maine professor is hoping to brew interest in her chemistry class by keeping the topic on beer.
University of Southern Maine professor Lucille Benedict tells the Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/2biPO5C ) it can be challenging to keep students engaged in chemistry, so she started using beer as a testing medium.
Benedict oversees the school’s new Quality Assurance/Quality Control and Research Laboratory. The lab has partnered with the Maine Brewers Guild to provide testing and training for breweries and brewmasters.
The lab charges $25 for basic testing.
