Biotechnology: the basics — June 26-30,2023
Biotechnology: Beyond the Basics — July 10-14, 2023
Both courses will be held at the BTC Institute on the Promega Corporation campus in Fitchburg, WI.
Recognizing that funds for professional development are limited, there are no course fees and stipends are provided to successful applicants. Stipends are $125 per day for each course. The registration form for each course includes a section designed for applicants to upload a letter that details interest in the course. These forms will be activated on January 1, 2023.
We view the provision of stipends as a way of further collaborating with the teachers we serve. This financial support is received with the provision that content covered in the course or workshop will subsequently be incorporated into recipients’ course materials; shared with students and colleagues; and, documented in the form of a report submitted to us upon completion.
For both courses, Peter Kritsch (Oregon High School) will serve as the primary instructor and Tess Reimer (Sun Prairie High School) will serve as an assistant instructor.
Many thanks to the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium, a member institution of the national network of Space Grant Consortia funded by NASA’s National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, for Aerospace Outreach Program funding over the years to support these efforts, as well as to our corporate sponsor, Promega Corporation!
We also offer a listing of Resources for Biotechnology Education.
