Event description

Description

Students will explore concepts in chemical biology through hands-on activities and demonstrations. While content and activities are geared towards a middle school audience, students of all ages are welcome! We will learn the basics of light microscopy by building our own cell-phone microscopes, and using them to explore the world of microorganisms in pond water. We will learn the basic chemistry needed to sustain single-cellular life, from chemical reactions to the four important macromolecules – proteins, lipids (fats), nucleic acids (DNA) and carbohydrates (sugars). We will also learn the basics of bacteriology, including bacteria’s interactions with our own bodies as well as with plants and the natural world.

​Details:

Ages: 11 - 14 (Middle School)

Cost: $90 for 3 sessions. (2 hours each) 10 am - noon.

Where: Jake's Toy Box

Note: There will be no class on Saturday October 14. Classes are scheduled October 7, 21 & 28.

Teacher Bio: Megan

The natural sciences have fascinated me since before I entered preschool. I am excited to have the opportunity to share my passion with students in Colorado!

I am a second-year graduate student in CU Boulder’s biochemistry program. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina in biochemistry and molecular biology. I have taught freshman-level chemistry for college students and general health topics for elementary-aged students. My favorite subjects are bacteriology and physical chemistry.

I hope my hands-on activities and lessons will help students get excited to learn chemistry and cell biology, as well as help students understand the fascinating interface between the two subjects.
