The microbial fuel cell project, which was successful in integrating multidisciplinary topics in science and engineering for a multidisciplinary group of students, was discussed. Integrating technical writing as part of the project made it more realistic and meaningful. The project also helped reinforce issues about the need for research on alternative fuel and energy sources. The project allowed students to focus on alternate energy sources such as biofuels.
