Personal Genetics Education Project

Education opportunities from our colleagues – The Jackson Lab

pgEd’s Dana Waring is on Mount Desert Island co-teaching “Teaching the Genome Generation“, an intensive 5 day course for high school teachers that combines advanced laboratory techniques and approaches to genetic analysis with a rigorous discussion of the social and ethical questions in personal genetics. The course is hosted at the Jackson Laboratory, with campuses in Bar Harbor, ME, Sacramento, CA and a new campus about to open in Farmington, CT. They offer an extensive list of courses and conferences, some of which may be of interest to teachers and their students. ¬†For example, they offer a residential summer program for high school and college level students, academic year sabbatical for teachers, and a Master of Science in Teaching program.¬†Check it out!
