Biotechnology, marine science, and environmental science are often intertwined. In this workshop, we will discover ways to teach students all three topics at once, while sparking their interest in important societal issues. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the effects of microplastics on marine mammals, waste management in marine aquaculture systems, living shorelines, algal growth, and human health risks from non-point and point-source water pollution. Join us this summer at BioNetwork’s 3-day, hands-on, intermediate workshop, Applied Biotechnology: Water Quality.
This workshop is designed for faculty with previous biotechnology experience. Alumni of our other programs are encouraged to attend.
