Vernier Software & Technology and Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., are combining their experience in science education products to offer an enhanced biotechnology curriculum for educators as well as students at the high school and college-level.
The newly combined curriculum will bring together Vernier’s data-acquisition equipment with Bio-Rad’s Biotechnology Explorer program kits and equipment. An example of the curriculum being developed features instructional tools that allow teachers to utilize Bio-Rad’s lab activities for bacterial transformation and DNA electrophoresis in conjunction with Vernier’s Blue and White Digital Bioimaging Systems and Logger Pro Software.
Vernier and Bio-Rad are currently offering workshops on their new solutions and presented a joint workshop at the National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT) conference in Denver in November 2009. For more information about these events, visit www.vernier.com/workshops.
