Applications Now Open for Cellular Construction Workshop at UCSF
The Science & Health Education Partnership is excited to announce a new NSF-funded summer program for high school teachers and students as part of the Center for Cellular Construction. This two-week workshop will engage student/teacher teams in design challenges as they learn together about the field of cellular engineering.

What is Cellular Engineering? 

 

Cellular Engineering is an emerging discipline poised to harness the untapped potential of living cells to solve complex societal problems and benefit humankind. The field will apply our burgeoning knowledge of how cells (and systems of cells) are built, make decisions, and accomplish tasks to develop new cell-based technologies.

Cellular Engineering by its nature is interdisciplinary and creating solutions like those listed above will require a new generation of scientists – those who enjoy tinkering, building, and figuring out how things work; and who are driven to make the world a better place.

Join us for the Cellular Construction Workshop 

  • Understand cells as biological machines
  • Combine engineering and computer science to understand cellular behavior
  • Recognize the cell as a system that can be programmed
  • Use robots to solve challenges similar to those faced by cells
  • Program cells to solve real world problems
  • Experience problem-based learning modules that integrate NGSS engineering practices and life sciences curriculum

Who?
High school science teachers and students
Students must have completed 10th grade and a biology course by the start of the workshop.

Preference given for schools with both teachers and students applying to participate.


When? 
July 24-August 4, 2017, 9 am-3 pm daily

Where?
UCSF

More details:
  • Teachers will be paid $1200, students will be paid $900 for completion of all program requirements.
  • In order to participate, students MUST be nominated by a high school science teacher (teachers can nominate up to three students).
  • The Center for Cellular Construction is committed to broadening participation in science – and strongly encourages nominations of students from groups underrepresented in the sciences.
