Hello,
We will be offering 2 one-week teacher courses, Biotechnology: The Basics July 17-21, 2017; and Biotechnology: Beyond the Basics July 24-28, 2017, at the BTC Institute in Fitchburg (Madison), WI. There will be no course fee and $500 stipends will be available for those who qualify. Optional graduate education credits will be available, if paid for by the participant, from Viterbo University and Edgewood College. Registration and more information can be found at: http://www.btci.org/k12/bta/twc/twc.html . Please share this information with your teacher friends and colleagues!
From a previous participant: “This past week has been very enlightening and fun. After 35 years of attending teacher/educator conferences and workshops, few have been as useful as this week was. Being able to have the hands on experience of completing some basic labs helps me validate what I teach about biotech. My confidence on approaching our science department to develop interdepartmental units on biotech is improved because I was able to use the equipment and complete the labs. My lab skills were very primitive and I was apprehensive about being able to complete the labs. Your instructions and helpful teaching tips for teaching students made it easy to learn. The wealth of information you provided and the sharing with the other instructors has given me a lot of ideas on how I can incorporate more biotech in each of my classes…Thank you for a wonderful week!”
Best wishes, Barbara
