Genetic Engineering student workshop
Most schools have difficulty providing practical genetic engineering activities for their students, so CSIRO Science Education Centre has organised a Genetic Engineering program for Victorian Certificate of Education Biology students that can provide experience and knowledge in genetic engineering applications and processes.
This is a two hour session including a lecture explaining techniques used in the session and basic applications of genetic engineering.
Students then get the chance to take part in hands-on genetic engineering activities to separate DNA fragments by gel electrophoresis and transform bacteria using plasmid DNA.
All equipment, student worksheets and follow-up material for teachers are provided.
This two-hour session costs $7.40 per student, with a maximum of 24 students per session. This program is available from 3 July to 24 August 2006. Bookings are essential.
