A workshop for Biology Teachers

Most students learning biology in schools consider it as a subject largely full of terminologies and facts to remember. Our aim is to change this perspective and demonstrate methods to make biology exciting and enjoyable in the classroom. The workshop aims to motivate biology teachers to make biology come alive in the classroom and discuss ways to inspire young minds to develop critical thinking.

Aim of the workshop

Biology teachers will interact with research scientists working in different areas of biological sciences and through this workshop they will learn ways to connect facts in the textbooks to its importance and application in biological and biomedical research. The workshop will have both theoretical and practical components.
