About this event

NCABR is partnering with the Wake Forest School of Medicine to present Why Vaccines Matter: From Laboratory to Clinic to Community, a free one-day in-person workshop on Friday, June 24, from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The workshop will be offered in person only and will feature the newly updated and expanded Rx for Science Literacy curriculum manual. A copy of the manual, along with breakfast, lunch and refreshments, will be provided to attendees at no cost thanks to generous sponsorship from the Wake Forest School of Medicine.

This program will highlight the New Technologies in Vaccines chapter from the newly updated and expanded Rx for Science Literacy curriculum manual. This program also will feature talks from Wake Forest School of Medicine researchers about why vaccines matter, about current COVID-19 and influenza vaccine research, and about the role of animals in biomedical research and more.

New Workshop Cancellation Policy: Due to high demand for the Rx for Science Literacy workshops, registrants who fail to cancel their registration for this program on or before Tuesday, June 21, will not be allowed to register for any other Rx for Science Literacy workshops for a year.

About the Curriculum: With generous support from the Biogen Foundation, NCABR and a team of science writers, biomedical researchers and curriculum developers comprehensively updated and expanded the Rx for Science Literacy curriculum manual in 2020. The newly updated curriculum includes a comprehensive update of all content, statistics and charts and includes a variety of new activities, resources, interviews with real world scientists and a new section on CRISPR and CRISPR technology. The manual includes chapters on nanobiotechnology, regenerative medicine and vaccines and is accompanied by a curriculum crosswalk that shows connections to North Carolina science standards and Next Generation Science Standards. It also includes a reading guide aligned to the Common Core standards.

About the Workshop Series: The Rx for Science Literacy workshop series provides K-12 educators a unique opportunity to tour research facilities, hear from scientists about their latest research advances and take home a free curriculum and other bioscience education materials.

Incentives for attending an Rx for Science Literacy workshop include:

  • 10 total program hours provided for certified educators to be used towards CEU credits (4 hours of additional work are optional in addition to the 6-hour virtual workshop)
  • Free updated Rx for Science Literacy curriculum manual to use in the classroom
  • Substitute teacher support (up to $80)
