Event Details

 To solidify the connections between public education classrooms and industry, BioNetwork has created the IDEA (Industry Driven Educational Activities) series of workshops for educators. These workshops provide the participants with tours of advanced manufacturing sites, related and standards based activities for their classroom, and the opportunity to develop new industry based lessons/activities in a collaborative environment. Typically, these workshops are a single day event, however, due to their popularity we have created this expanded three-day workshop called the BIG IDEA. By the end of the workshop you’ll have toured multiple industry sites, spoken directly with industry representative, and be well prepared to talk to your students about advanced manufacturing and the types of careers that are available to them right here in their own backyards!

This workshop is open to all but will be of most interest to community college faculty as well as K12 CTE and science teachers.

Workshop objectives include:

  • Exploring the fundamental scientific concepts underlying biotechnology and its applications
  • Providing effective methods/lesson plans that integrate multidisciplinary science into course curricula per applicable standards

Lead instructor: Courtney Berhle, M.Ed.
