Engaging students in research and translational biomedical science

Room 2951 (Kiewit Auditorium)

We invite you to attend an interactive one-day conference for Arizona KB12 science/biotechnology teachers to preview 1) a new inquiry-based science curriculum focusing on student questioning and translational biomedical science; and 2) a unique web-based platform including a smart phone interface to enhance its delivery and access. Funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, this curiosity-rewarding curriculum and customizable platform is being developed in response to needs expressed by science teachers, educational leaders, and health professionals, for a way to engage students in science and health career opportunities and to “teach” by example and experience the research process and research tools per se, independent of particular course content and school resources. Both the inquiry-based curriculum and the platform are designed to be used in conjunction with your existing courses and will be customizable to your school environment. Continuing contact and collaboration with the UA College of Medicine Student Research Program faculty, staff, and students) is anticipated.
Register early to ensure your place.
Conference, Lunch, and Curricular Resources will be provided at no cost.
