The BIOTECH project has three components: professional development workshops for teachers, classroom visits for modeling hands-on biotechnology activities, and extensive materials support for teachers to carry out biotechnology experiments independently. Our success is in the numbers - we have worked with over 100 Arizona teachers to conduct molecular genetics activities with thousands of students. Teacher Professional Development training is available by request as well as through CTE (Career and Technical Education) Professional Development Workshops that emphasize the utilization of the biotechnology and molecular biology resources and equipment in a classroom setting.
