Public school science educators can participate in a teacher symposium presented by USU's Center for Integrated Biosystems. A variety of training and lab experiences are included.
Utah State University invites high school science, health science and agriculture teachers from around the state to attend this year’s Biotechnology Teacher Symposium. The day-long program will be held Monday, Nov. 14, at Utah State University’s Center for Integrated BioSystems in Logan.
