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.
