             In the spirit of science geekiness, I found a very interesting course that may intrigue sustainability and energy efficiency fanatics. “Organic Solar Cells - Theory and Practice” is a course offered by Technical University of Denmark (DTU). Not only do you get to learn from amazing European scientists, but also you get to learn about how organic solar cells are efficient and can be next big solution our world needs!

            This course teaches at your own pace and it has 6 modules to follow with. I’m currently listening in on their videos and I’m constantly learning new things. As a student with a biochem background, the world just got bigger. Check it out at!
