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!
