Saturday, February 2 | 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. | Grades 6 - 12
Share your favorite DNA model and learn about other models that help students learn the fundamentals and nuances of DNA science. The development and use of models is one of the eight scientific practices outlined in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, which was recently published by the National Research Council. We will explore multiple representations of DNA and associated processes through a critical lens that can help both students and teachers improve their skills in terms of creating and using models. Special guests include Judy Hauck, education director of TeachDNA, who will share the TeachDNA model and Kathy Vandiver, outreach director for the MIT Center for Environmental Health Sciences, who will share the updated Lego® DNA. This workshop is part of the Bread Club Gathering series.

One of the world's largest science centers and Boston's most attended cultural institution, the Museum introduces about 1.5 million visitors a year to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) via dynamic programs and hundreds of interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Its 10,000-square-foot Hall of Human Life draws on the latest discoveries in the life sciences to engage visitors in their own biology and health. Other highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, Butterfly Garden and 4-D Theater. Reaching over 20,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. Its National Center for Technological Literacy®’s engineering curricula have reached an estimated 79,200 teachers and 6.9 million students nationwide. Visit mos.org.
