J. Craig Venter Institute Hosts Genomics Education Program for DC Metro Area Teachers
Date:7/29/2010

Program gives teachers in-depth information about exciting advances in genomics

ROCKVILLE, Md., July 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) is hosting their 6th Annual DiscoverGenomics! Curriculum Workshop, July 26 through July 30, and will be hosting the Genomics Course for Educators, the following week, August 2 through August 6, at JCVI's Rockville, MD facility. These courses, made possible by support from Life Technologies Foundation, are designed for Washington Metropolitan area teachers to learn about the rapidly evolving field of genomics through direct interaction with JCVI scientists.

Through the course, local middle and high school teachers will learn about and become proficient in the latest tools and technologies of genomics. They will then use this information to develop classroom and individual learning activities for their students. In an effort to better understand our environment and biodiversity at the genetic level, teachers will have the opportunity to learn new and exciting research protocols to identify plant and bacterial species taken from soil from their own school yards. As part of these programs, teachers are eligible to participate with the Mobile Lab or Mobile Equipment Programs.

In June, JCVI hosted ten educators at their San Diego, CA facility.  These teachers were very enthusiastic about the program.  One teacher commented, "Very informative! Lot of hands-on lab experience with tools that I have had a desire to learn about but, until now, did not have the opportunity."  Another stated that the lab activities that were presented "are realistic
