Biotechnology: the basics was held one in-person (July 12-16) and is offered virtually (july 26-30). Please see the details below.
Recognizing that funds for professional development are limited, there are no course fees and stipends are provided to successful applicants. Stipends are $100 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.
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.
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!
