Hands-Online Microsystems Academy
Fall 2014 Workshop Series
DNA Microarrays and Crystallography
During the fall of 2014, SCME is hosting two microtechnology workshops for high school and college instructors. These workshops focus on classroom activities related to STEM and microtechnology concepts that can easily be incorporated into your existing curricula. Both workshops are held on a Saturday at the University of New Mexico's South Campus, 800 Bradbury SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Each workshop includes the following:
- Detailed instruction in microtechnology topics
- Specific information on using classroom kits/activities to teach microtechnology topics
- Complete coverage of the kit material and supporting learning modules
- Time to discover how the kits/activities and learning modules meet the STEM and NGSS standards
- Strategies for incorporating the topics and activities into your curricula.
Following are brief descriptions of the workshops:
