Fairlife comes to Lake

In the fall during our Metrics Unit one of the projects Mr. Carstensen has his students do is look for a misuse of the metric system on consumer packaging.  One of his students found an error on a bottle of Fairlife milk and wrote his letter to them.  They were so impressed with his letter that they asked for a chance to come and share what they are doing on their farm which led to the presentation.  Sue McCloskey (co-founder of fairlife) taught a lesson to Mr. Carstensen's Physical Science classes on the innovative way her company is converting cow manure into compressed natural gas (CNG).  They are then using that CNG to power their dairy farm and entire truck fleet. You can learn more about “Poo Power” at https://vimeo.com/96632469 and see a clip of her visit here https://business.facebook.com/fairlifeLLC/?business_id=741050462608756
