Bioengineering in the High School Classroom
Grade Level(s): High School
Date(s): July 11-13, 2018, 9 AM to 4 PM
Location: NC State University, Raleigh, NC
Cost: Free (stipends offered to participating teachers and students)
Description: Are you a teacher or student who is curious how biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and engineering all work together? Then this might be the opportunity for you!
The Science House is partnering with the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and the Golden Leaf Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) to bring you this unique summer program designed for high school teachers and students. This three day program will feature hands-on activities and lessons focusing on synthetic biology, engineering concepts in biology, and career development for bioengineering.
This program serves a dual purpose. Teachers and students are asked to apply in pairs, one teacher and one student from a school. The high school science teacher will learn new lessons and activities they can integrate into their biology, chemistry, or physics classroom or short engineering modules to supplement their instruction. The students will be exposed to cutting edge content and careers that will increase their interest in bioengineering studies.
Who: High school science teachers along with a promising student interested in bioengineering are encouraged to apply together.
Stipend: Participating teachers will receive a stipend of $300 ($100/day) and students will receive a stipend of $150 ($50/day).
Day Program Only: This program is not an overnight experience, therefore housing is not provided. Any teacher/student teacher pair is encouraged to apply, however if overnight accommodations are needed participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements.
Sponsored by: This project is sponsored by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
