March Learning Tech Newsletter. Educational Molecules for Fun

We need you
Are you a teacher with access to PC computers?  Test IA in your classroom!  We spent 2010 developing an excellent test of learning and attitudes toward molecular biology.  Now we need students in 7th – 12th grades to play IA1.0 for 2 class periods and and then take our survey.  Please register here and we will send you more information.

Making IA2.0 requires finding the fun in Immunology

Many thousands of people spend their lives in windowless laboratories, standing day in and day out, barely speaking to their silent lab mates, often working in a 4°C room, or holding their arms up for hours while they conduct their experiments inside the awkward, but sterile cell culture hood.

Why are they doing this?
