BIOTECH Project

The BIOTECH Project visits high school and middle school classrooms to conduct Biotechnology and Molecular Biology activities, such as DNA extraction and fingerprinting, cacterial transformation, protein electrophoresis, and PCR.  Our program offers a variety of laboratory kits as well as the equipment necessary to implement our experiments at a modest cost.  Additionally, the BIOTECH Project supports and assists teachers in developing new activities for their science classrooms - through professional development and classroom support, the we have worked with over 100 Arizona teachers to conduct molecular genetics activities with thousands of students each year!
