Northwestern Facilitators: Jewett Lab members, Ashley Walter, Natalie Bueno, & Emily Ferrin
Location: Northwestern University's Evanston campus
Five outstanding teachers will be selected to gain hands-on lab experience working alongside scientists in a Northwestern University research laboratory. Teachers will split their time between experiments “at the bench” and developing their own curriculum materials based on their research.
Teachers work in the laboratory of Professor Michael Jewett in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. The Jewett lab is at the cutting edge of synthetic biology and develops cell-free biological technology for biomanufacturing life-saving therapeutics, advanced materials, and sustainable chemicals, both quickly and on-demand. For more information about the Jewett Lab visit their website.
Participating Teachers will receive a $1000 stipend.
