Bioinformatics is well placed to appeal to students in a wide variety of disciplines at early stages in their education. There is, however, a gap between this specialized area of research and the undergraduate learning opportunities available to students. Whether you’re a beginner with little/no experience in teaching bioinformatics, or you’re someone with research interests in the field, this session will provide you with a set of tools for bringing bioinformatics into the classroom.
It’s one week to go until our 2009 high school student conference. This event showcases various scientific pursuits, including the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities, as well as interact with some of the most prominent scientists in the world. This year’s program has an evolutionary science theme and it’s looking so good that I heard a rumor that Darwin himself, is thinking of coming.
The Michael Smith Laboratories is pleased to announce our second annual Scientific Conference designed for high school students (Grades 8 to 12). This event showcases various scientific pursuits, including the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities, as well as interact with some of the most prominent scientists in the world.
