We will use a course site at learn.illinois.edu to organize digital workshop materials.
As part of an NIH-SEPA program and in collaboration with the Institute for Genomic Biology, we are offering a week-long summer teachers' workshop. Genomics for™ Teachers will help teachers connect cutting-edge genomics research at the University of Illinois to address core neuroscience and biology concepts in the National Science Education Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards.
Join us to visit University of Illinois science research laboratories and facilities, attend brown bag seminars with scientists highlighted in the curriculum materials, experience the units as a teacher and student, and be part of a regional and national teacher community!
