Event description

Description

This one-day workshop will focus on DCIs BIOL1.LS1.4, BIO1.LS3.1, and BIO1.LS3.3 and emphasize the CCCs of pattern, scale, and cause and effect. Why do all living things have these sequences of code to which we assign letters? Do your students struggle to grasp the nuances of genetics? What is the difference between chromosomes, chromatin, or a chromatid, anyway? Andrew Morency will help participants explore the tiny world of molecular biology to bring these abstract concepts to life! Join us as we focus on the structure and function, the tiny scale and the enormous impact of these life-giving molecules. Participants will receive a K'NEX DNA Replication and Transcription Set, a protein building set, and other supplies. This workshop is independent of the High School Biology-Metabolism workshop. If you have access to a computer, please bring it with you. Participants will receive a $100 stipend.
