Modeling Molecular Biology (Millbury High School)

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

Learn how to use several different molecular model sets, including the MIT Edgerton Center DNA/RNA and Protein Sets, to teach cellular processes that are difficult to understand, such as replication, transcription, and translation. Specifically made to be manipulated the models help students kinesthetically learn about DNA, RNA and protein structure and function.  The lessons can be easily adapted for different learning levels, including advanced lessons on 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.

New incentive program. Schools can earn $200 to spend at Fisher Scientific for participation in two or more BioTeach workshop. Incentives begin with the second workshop attended. Details of the incentive program will be sent to anyone registering for a BioTeach workshop.
