Advances in biotechnology, and our understanding of molecular genetics, have profoundly impacted agricultural practices and our nation’s farmers.
In this three-day workshop, July 22-24, 2014, we’ll examine the science behind recent agriscience applications of biotechnology. Using student friendly hands-on activities, we will dig into the sequencing of plant genomes, the technology behind GMOs and linkages between modern biotechnology and crop development.
Teachers will receive 16 hours of professional development and take home materials and other resources for use in their classrooms. Housing and travel stipend is also provided.
This workshop is made possible thanks to support from the State of Alabama.
