Genes in Space: Secondary Science

For decades, the tools of biotechnology and DNA analysis have been difficult to implement in classrooms. The miniPCR DNA Discovery System is an innovative biotechnology teaching toolkit that closes this gap. In this hands-on workshop we will develop skills to bring the cutting edge of biology and space exploration into your classroom. miniPCR and partners have created Genes in Space, a free science competition where teachers and students can design DNA research proposals for space. Winners have their experiments launched to the International Space Station and become involved in real-world space biology research. Join us and learn how to participate in Genes in Space, immerse yourself in real-world uses of biotechnology in agriculture, forensics, and medical sciences, and develop skills to implement hands-on biotechnology with your students. We'll also share how to obtain free loans of miniPCR "Lab in a Box" equipment and reagents.
