Bioinformatics Education for STudents (BEST) exposes teachers to modern molecular biology concepts by incorporating computational biology and bioinformatics into their high school curriculum. BEST also prepares teachers to introduce their students to emerging and exciting biomedical careers.
An annual professional development summer workshop trains high school teachers using the “teach-back” technique. This training equips single-subject teachers with the tools to address and teach multidisciplinary concepts in bioinformatics. This technique fortifies the teacher with all the necessary multidisciplinary content knowledge and also develops feedback and evaluation strategies as the lessons progress.
We invite secondary science, math and technology teachers to attend this workshop.
