Teacher training workshops for middle- and high-school science teachers consist of a full-day workshop on applying the biosciences. 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 first of three summer workshops is “Water: Our Bio-Engineered Resource” for 6th grade teachers on August 19, 2006.

Details: Did you know that microscopic organisms are used to digest the waste in our dirty water? Bioengineers have designed and optimized the use of these microbes to treat our water. Your students will learn how to test and treat water and then design their own water treatment system.
