Sponsoring Company: Immersed Games

Video games can help improve your students’ three-dimensional, NGSS learning by having students use science and engineering practices as they directly engage with phenomena as part of storylines. We will examine model activities and discuss how games can fit into your classroom instruction even in a remote or hybrid setting.

Sponsoring Company: miniPCR bio

With BioBits® cell-free systems, students visualize biological concepts in ways never before possible. Watch DNA make RNA and protein in real time—then, in a separate activity, directly investigate the relationship between amino acid sequence and protein structure and function. All in a visual, engaging format that is quick and easy and requires minimal equipment—ideal for distance learning.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Students can visualize the flow of genetic information from DNA to protein using BioBits cell-free technology 2. Fluorescence can illuminate how DNA makes RNA makes protein in what is known as the Central Dogma of Molecular Biology 3. Students can identify and manipulate the steps of transcription and translation in guided inquiry experimentds

Zombie Apocalypse!

Wednesday, July 29 • 2:47 PM - 3:27 PM

STRAND: High School

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: Texas Instruments

Be part of a zombie apocalypse! Learn about disease-spread modeling using simulations and fun storylines about a zombie outbreak. Applicable for middle school and high school, this workshop is sure to scare you and your little zombies with its exciting Hollywood themes used to engage students in learning science!

TAKEAWAYS:
1. This session will explore disease-spread modeling using fictional zombies. 2. Attendees will also see how using Hollywood themes combined with actual STEM careers can be a fun way to engage students in learning science and STEM. 3. Attendees will find out about free science and STEM lessons from Texas Instruments.

Modeling Biotechnology Concepts with a One Kit Wonder Workshop Session Slide Presentation

STRAND: High School

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: 3D Molecular Designs

We have all faced the terrifying “blank stare wall” when teaching biotechnology concepts such as PCR, Sanger sequencing, and restriction enzymes. Explore how you can cover all of these topics and more using a single modeling kit. Through NGSS-focused lessons, your students can experience the process, not memorize results.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Participants will learn about the benefits of hands-on modeling. 2. Participants will practice one application of PCR modeling. 3. Participants will see how modeling with the Biotechnology kit already fits into their curriculum and can increase student mastery.

SPEAKERS:
Diane Sigalas (Livingston High School: Livingston, NJ), Heather Ryan (3D Molecular Designs: Milwaukee, WI), Kris Herman (3D Molecular Designs: Milwaukee, WI)

CRISPR Science—From Editing the Human Genome to Coronavirus Diagnostics

CRISPR Science - From Editing the Human Genome to Coronavirus Diagnostics Workshop Materials

STRAND: Postsecondary

Show Details

Sponsoring Company: MSOE Center for BioMolecular Modeling

We will focus on the defining feature of CRISPR technology, the ability of the Cas9 endonuclease to find and cut DNA at a unique site in the 3.2 billion base-pair human genome. We will also explore how a related CRISPR protein is being used to detect the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Participants will see how models can be used to investigate how the mechanism of the CRISPR/Cas9 system is used to edit genomes. 2. Participants will learn how CRISPR technology is being used in current Coronavirus research. 3. Participants will discover the benefits of hands-on modeling and how it improves student understanding.
