Amgen Biotech Experience Ireland professional development workshops for senior cycle science teachers. 

 

The continued professional development training workshops for teachers new to the Amgen Biotech Experience Ireland education programme or who haven’t implemented ABE labs in a number of years is now open for registration. This workshop will introduce teachers to the ABE Ireland programme and train teachers to deliver ABE labs 1 – 4 covering micropipetting, gel electrophoresis, DNA digestion and ligation. There will also be sessions with a veteran ABE teacher on implementing the labs in school, and a guest speaker on their career in research. After the workshop attendees will be given all teaching material and manuals, and will be able to book a loan of all the equipment and samples needed to run ABE Ireland practical labs in their school. 

The workshop will be held at Drumcondra Teacher Education Centre on Saturday 18th September, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
