I feel that some teachers may be intimidated by biotechnology concepts (all the science behind it...genetics, DNA, genetic engineering, transgenic modification, etc). What do you think?
I enjoy teaching it, but funding for the material for labs has been a tough issues for us!
Have you applied for any grants? I have a list of biotechnology related grant opportunities if you would like me to send it to you. Unfortunately it costs money for lab materials and supplies! However there are some cheap alternatives for supplies. Sometimes you just have to be creative!
No haven't applied for any grants. Didn't really know of any biotechnology grants. I would appreciate the list you have. thanks.
Are you a member of the National Science Teachers Association? They mail monthly publications that have great resources, including a section on grants and free resources.
Someone voted for "lack of educational resources" - have you checked out our new communities of practice page? Also what topic/concept do you need educational materials for? I would love to help get you those materials or atleast give you some contacts that would be helpful.
