Mississauga teacher awarded prize for excellence in teaching genomics
Date:11/9/2010

Toronto, November 9, 2010 The Ontario Genomics Institute (OGI) has announced that Mr. Glen Kim, who teaches science at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Secondary School (Mississauga, Ontario), is the recipient of its 2010 Genomics Teaching Prize. The annual prize recognizes the Ontario secondary school teacher whose teaching best exemplifies OGI's commitment to preparing Ontario's students for their future roles: perhaps as scientists, but certainly in making professional and personal decisions that will be benefited by a deeper understanding of genomics research and its many applications, outcomes and impacts.

Mr. Kim's approach to bringing knowledge about genomics research and technology into the classroom has stressed the practical applications of genomics: for example, the impact of the Human Genome Project on both human health and the environment, the use of leading edge technologies, and the development of the artificial bacterial genome through synthetic biology. He has also been inventive both within the classroom he recently set-up a forensic lab in his classroom, where his students learn about methods for DNA analysis in the context of solving crimes and in complementing the resources available in the classroom with external resources, arranging for his students to take advantage of experimental genetics facilities at the Ontario Science Centre and research mentoring opportunities in major research institutions.

Mr. Kim joined St. Joan of Arc school five years ago and is responsible for the delivery of Grade 11 and 12 biology courses. Mr. Kim designed and implemented a new program, the Interdisciplinary Studies in Biotechnology course, for teaching biotechnology in his school; participating students earn a Grade 12 university preparation credit for performing research in a university or hospital lab. This unique opportunity has allowed students to do research in such diverse areas as the genetics of pathogen resistance against
