GIDAS- Biotechnology Camp for High School Students

 

Dates: July 17-21, 2017

Location: USB Building, University of Michigan, non-residential camp

Grades: Academically motivated current (2016-17) high school and 8th grade students 

This camp combines UNIX usage, wet-lab experiments, and thermodynamics calculation of nucleotide hybridization to teach current nucleotide biotechnology (qRT-PCR, microarray, next-generation sequencing). Wet-lab experiments will include PCR and gel-electrophoresis. As part of the camp, students will be encouraged to make a plan using new technology or improve technology, design it, and pitch the idea. No prior knowledge besides of DNA and RNA is necessary except for students’ motivation.
