Modeling Molecular Biology (Cambridge)

This event has ended. We hope to see you at a future event. See upcoming events here: https://www.massbioed.org/events

The MIT Edgerton Center DNA/RNA and Protein Sets were specifically designed to demonstrate key concepts in cellular biology.  The models are made to be manipulated so they can kinesthetically teach cellular processes that are difficult to understand, such as replication, transcription, and translation.  The models also teach multiple levels of DNA and protein structure, including protein folding and how it determines protein function.  The lessons are easily adjusted for different learning levels and we have new advanced lessons for both DNA and proteins.  More information at: edgerton.mit.edu/DNA-proteins-sets.

 

 

Participants will receive student lab protocols, teacher instruction manuals, and curricular support resources to implement these labs in the classroom. This workshop qualifies for 10 PDPs based upon completion of the designated assessments.
