This workshop is an opportunity for teachers to try out new twists on traditional AP Biology labs as a way to introduce and reinforce the Big Ideas of the course. Participants will learn how to incorporate 21st-century lab skills & practices including pipetting, DNA gel electrophoresis, and PCR (polymerase chain reaction) into their course in a meaningful way. With a focus on understanding the science behind the techniques, teachers are trained to troubleshoot and modify labs on the fly, and to feel confident in their general lab skills.
Participants earn access to free lab materials and loaner equipment through the Baxter Box program.
