Genetic Resources to Empower Alabama Teachers — GREAT — workshops update high school teachers’ genetics knowledge by highlighting recent scientific findings. Teachers will be introduced to applications based on these discoveries through two days of small group concurrent sessions and talks by HudsonAlpha educators.
GREAT workshops are made possible through support from the State of Alabama. They are available for teachers at Alabama accredited, public high schools. Educators who complete the two-day workshop will receive substitute teacher cost reimbursement of up to $70 per day and return to the classroom with student-tested lesson plans, hands-on materials and classroom supplies.
A limited number of travel reimbursements are available for educators whose schools are 60+ miles from the event location. This can be used to cover the cost of lodging, meal and mileage. Eligibility is limited to educators who teach one or more sections of Biology, AP Biology, Genetics or Anatomy and Physiology in a public high school in Alabama.
