The Baxter Center is excited to run the Baxter Box @ Home: CRISPR Gene Editing workshop. Through this interactive virtual program, teachers will test out Bio-Rad's new lab and work with colleagues to creatively think through how to bring this activity back to classroom. Participants will borrow equipment and receive materials, join the Baxter Center for a live workshop, and run the lab from wherever they like, for FREE.
By participating in the program participants will:
- Borrow lab equipment and receive reagents to test out Bio-Rad's CRISPR Gene Editing lab.
- Plan with a community of educators and Baxter Center staff to reflect on how activities can be brought back to the classroom.
- Become eligible to borrow classroom sets of equipment and receive up to four lab kits for FREE through the Baxter Box Loaner Program.
- Earn 7 CEUs for participating!
In accordance with the mission of our program to promote equity in science education, we will prioritize chicagoland educators who represent and serve communities that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM, including BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) as well as communities with a significant proportion of low-income families.
