To solidify the connections between public education classrooms and industry, BioNetwork has created the I.D.E.A (Industry Driven Educational Activities) series of workshops for educators. These workshops provide the participants with a tour of an advanced manufacturing site, a related and standards based activity 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 I.D.E.A. This workshop will equip educators with first hand experiences allowing them to answer “when am I ever going to have to use this” with confidence. By the end of the workshop you’ll be ready to talk to your students about advanced manufacturing and the types of careers that are available to them right here in their own backyards!
Workshop objectives include:
- Exploring the fundamental scientific concepts underlying biotechnology and its applications
- Providing effective methods for teaching workshop concepts in the classroom
- Determining valid methods for integrating biotechnology into course curricula per applicable standards
