High school science, health science and agriculture teachers from around the state are invited to attend Utah State University’s 12th annual Biotechnology Teacher Symposium. The day-long program is Monday, Nov. 5, at Utah State University’s Center for Integrated BioSystems in Logan.

 

The Biotechnology Teacher Symposium is a teacher training program offered in collaboration with the Utah State Office of Education. This year’s symposium will examine microbial populations from the Great Salt Lake. New and past attendees are welcome to attend.

 

Teachers participate in lab-based activities involving isolation and characterization of microbial populations in environmental samples, DNA extraction, PCR experiments, gel electrophoresis and interpretation of results. All exercises are designed to be used in existing science courses.

 

Attendees of this free program receive half of an in-service credit from the Utah State Office of Education and handouts of supporting materials covering all activities at the workshop.

 

USU’s Center for Integrated BioSystems is a fully equipped, laboratory-based teaching facility with professional staff offering hands-on training in biotechnology methods and laboratory instruction.

 

For more information, call 435-797-3504, visit the Center for Integrated BioSystems website or contact program director Afifa Sabir, afifa.sabir@usu.edu.
