Genetic Technologies for Alabama Classrooms (GTAC) is a two-week teacher academy designed to help Alabama educators more effectively teach genetics by updating content knowledge, identifying common student misconceptions and gaining familiarity with hands-on genetic activities and classroom tools.

The 2013 GTAC is scheduled for June 16-28, and participants will interact with researchers studying genetic influences in cancer, neurological disorders and infectious diseases, as well as tour biotechnology companies dedicated to improving diagnosis and treatment of human disease. Educators chosen to attend the academy will receive room, board and a stipend, including a collection of materials and resources related to genetics and biotechnology.

This is an excellent opportunity for life science teachers seeking to update their understanding of genetic concepts and their application to healthcare, agriculture and energy. All applications are due by February 20, 2013. Space is limited, so visit the GTAC page to apply.
