UPDATE 3/16/17: This event is cancelled.
We’re hosting a teacher workshop as part of the 2017 Atlanta Science Festival to help educators bring the cutting edge of biology and space exploration into their classrooms. Participants will solve a food contamination crisis at the International Space Station using the essential biotech techniques of PCR and electrophoresis. Then we will share information about the Genes in Space science competition where teachers and students design authentic DNA research proposals for space. Competitors can win biotech equipment for their schools and winners will get their experiments launched to the International Space Station!
