Dr. Sandra Porter will attend the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) Conference/ Gene Connection 25th Year Celebration and Conference, where she will learn how schools in California are working with NGSS. The conference, hosted by BABEC (Bay Area Biotechnology Education Consortium) will be at Skyline College, 3300 College Dr. San Bruno, CA from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm.
This year's event will feature speakers from Genentech, San Jose State University (and NGSS writer), and the GeneConnection Steering Committee. They will discuss how companies use science in practice, everything you'd want to know about NGSS, and aligning lab materials to NGSS. For teachers, 0.5 CEU are available for optional purchase on site.
And, Dr. Porter will have her iPad prepared to demo Molecule World and MW DNA Binding Lab!
