Each workshop, held at the Arizona Science Center in downtown Phoenix, covers a set of lesson plans and background information that you can use to bring real life applications of bioscience to students. The second of three summer workshops is “Genetically Modified Foods in my Schoolyard?” for 7th grade teachers on August 26, 2006.

Details: What are the pros and cons of genetically modified foods? This set of lessons is ideal for team social science and science teaching. Your students will learn about the application of bioscience to agriculture and grow their own genetically modified crop.
