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.
