Basic Biotech Lab Prep (Cambridge)

Do you need or want additional support to prepare the reagents for one (or more) of the labs you learned in our Basic Biotechnology workshop? In this workshop, we will guide you through much of the teacher preparation for the Molecular Rainbow lab, the Redesigning Bacteria transformation lab, and one of our basic DNA electrophoresis labs. You will prepare dyes, the bacterial growth media and plates, agarose for gels, and DNA samples needed for up to 30 groups. 

 To attend this workshop you must:

  1. Have attended the BioTeach Basic Biotech workshop since January 2018.
  2. Implement all labs for which you acquire reagents by March 13th, 2020.
  3. Have your principal sign a Memo of Understanding prepared by MassBioEd stating that your school has received a supply grant.
  4. Document the implementation of each lab through photos and social media.
  5. There is limited space available in this workshop for private school teachers.

This workshop does not qualify for PDPs. Participants can request a certificate of completion.
