Middle School GPS

At Middle School GPS, Alabama public middle school science educators will experience free one-day workshops that emphasize the genetics components of the Alabama 7th grade Life Science course of study, specifically standards 12, 13 and 14. These regional professional development workshops provide updated content knowledge and resources to support Alabama middle school life science educators.

HudsonAlpha educators will lead teachers through a full day of utilizing models, cutting edge genomics research and pedagogical strategies to bring real-world genetics content to their classrooms.

Teachers will leave the workshop with eight hours of professional learning, digital resources and a Chromosock™ Kit to take back to their classroom. Additionally, teachers will be reimbursed for their substitute costs, up to $70. Registration is limited to educators who teach full-time for an Alabama public middle school.

A new round of middle school GPS content will begin Fall, 2019.
