Beyond DNA

July 18 - 20, 2017

Facilitator: Mary Clark (Vernon Hills High School)

In this advanced-level workshop, teachers explore hands-on, inquiry-based, NGSS-aligned labs that use proteins to examine structure and function. Led by an expert teacher and Northwestern scientists, teachers are trained in protein-based techniques including chromatography, SDS-PAGE, and colorimetric assays. Teachers learn to troubleshoot and modify labs on the fly, and to feel confident in their general lab skills.

Participants earn access to free lab materials and loaner equipment through the Baxter Box program.
