USING HANDS-ON LABS TO EXPLORE STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION

June 5, 2017

Lindblom Math & Science Academy

Time: 8:30am - 3:30pm 

Facilitator: Mary Clark (Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry Instructor)

Bring the central dogma to life with labs exploring chromatography, protein modeling, and SDS-PAGE! Under the guidance of experienced high school teachers and Northwestern University scientists, teachers will experience lab activities like:

  • Comparative Proteomics
  • Bradford Assay
  • GFP Chromotography
  • ​Mini Toobers and Fold-It
  • GFP SDS-PAGE

Teachers are trained in multiple lab activities and earn access to free lab materials and loaner equipment through the Baxter Box program.

Participants earn 7 CPDUs.

This workshop is presented in conjunction with the Chicago Public Schools Department of Science for CPS teachers. Substitute coverage will be made available for CPS teachers.
