In this hands-on teacher workshop, you will develop skills to bring the cutting edge of biology and space exploration into your own classroom. With an innovative teaching toolkit from miniPCR, you will solve a food contamination crisis at the International Space Station using the essential biotech techniques of PCR and electrophoresis. Then we will share information about the Genes in Space science competition where teachers and students design authentic DNA research proposals for space. Participants can win biotech equipment for their schools and winners will get their experiments launched to the International Space Station!
