      C. elegans is a common, well-studied free living nematode that is being used in biomedical research as a model for human development, genetics, aging, and disease.  This wonderful creature is slowly making its way into both middle and high school classrooms.  This four-hour workshop will be held to introduce middle and high school teachers on how beneficial such a small creature could be in the understanding of many scientific concepts that are taught throughout the year.  Engaging hands-on activities will be done on various scientific topics that allow students to experience the scientific method first hand. There will be a $5 charge for materials. Your pre-payment will guarantee your spot in the workshop.


      To register, please contact Ellie Warder at warder@... or call (520) 621-5903. You should indicate which workshop you wish to attend (morning or afternoon). Upon completion of the workshop you will receive a certificate for 4 hours of professional development.
