Event Details

Biotechnology is all around us, and has a profound influence on many aspects of our daily lives: from the food we eat, to the energy we use, and medicines we take. This field is ever evolving, and at times, it can be a daunting task for educators to “keep up” or feel comfortable enough with their own foundation in the subject to bring these ideas and concepts into their classrooms. Join BioNetwork for a three-day crash course, Biotech 101, which has been designed to provide educators a foundation in basic biotechnology as well as innovative methods for incorporating it into existing curriculum. This workshop will combine lectures and discussions with loads of hands-on exposure to equipment and lessons that are ready to be integrated into your curriculum.

Attendees will go home with ready to use activities that correlate to their curricula.

Workshop objectives include:

  • Exploring the fundamental scientific concepts underlying biotechnology and the relevant laboratory techniques that test those concepts
  • Providing effective methods for teaching workshop concepts in the classroom.
  • Determining valid methods for integrating biotechnology into course curricula per applicable standards

Participants will:


  • go home with over $75 in supplies

  • earn 2.4 CEUs

  • receive copies of all workshop materials

  • be provided lunch and refreshments daily

  • be eligible for lodging assistance (subject to approval- please inquire at
