What better time to capitalize on what is happening in the world to bring science to life? Participants will learn how to help students better understand current events through lessons that explore biotechnology, genetics, and microbiology. Engage in hands-on activities that include PCR, gel electrophoresis, and pipetting practices that directly translate to STEM careers. Enhance your genetics content with kinesthetic lessons that help students construct a deeper understanding of abstract genetic concepts.
