Test out BioRad’s Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration lab at home with other educators!

Thursday, April 15th from 4-6pm CST

Virtual, Zoom

Facilitators: Mary Clark, Suzanne Fetherling, Natalie Bueno, Emily Ferrin, and Ashley Walter

The Baxter Center is excited to run Baxter Box @ Home: Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration workshop. Through this interactive virtual program, teachers will test out BioRad's Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration lab and work with teachers to creatively think through how we can bring this activity back to their virtual and/or in-person classroom. Participants will receive materials, join the Baxter Center for a live workshop, and run the lab right in their own home for free.

By participating in the program participants will:

  • Receive materials and reagents to test out a lab at home. You will receive materials for BioRad's Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration lab. You will be able to keep everything you receive in this Baxter Box @ Home workshop.
  • Plan with a community of educators and Baxter Center staff to reflect on how activities can be brought back to their virtual and/or in-person classroom.
  • 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.
