Have you ever wondered what the biotechnology and medical technology industries do? How is cutting-edge science used to fuel discoveries in disease diagnosis and treatment, agricultural breakthroughs and alternative fuel methods? Spend the day with the Georgia BioEd Institute answering the following questions:
1) What is biotechnology?
2) What is the science driving the industry (genetics, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry)?
3) What are some important laboratory techniques used in the industry (Micropipetting and ELISA – Enzyme-linked ImmunoSorbent Assay)
4) How can I do “real” science in the classroom (research science, publishing classroom research)?
Melissa Nikolic (MS) is the Director of Programming at the Georgia BioEd Institute. She has been working with high schools across the state of Georgia providing cutting edge professional development opportunities in biotechnology, in partnership with colleges and universities. In addition, Ms. Nikolic is a professor of Anatomy and Physiology at Chamberlain School of Nursing. She is pleased to lead the day long training to support your journey to become a world-class STEM instructor.
This training is intended for high school science and CTAE teachers. If you are a middle school science teacher and would like to attend please note that this training is focused on concepts of antibody mediated immunity. If you do not cover this topic in detail the ELISA lab would not be appropriate for your students.
