GEM Educational Resources

GEM is committed to increasing awareness and understanding of the genome and microbiome at a young age.  We have worked with local educators to develop lessons, aligned to current learning standards.  These lessons are available for download and use.  Please contact Sandra Small, PhD regarding questions about the lessons.

This is a program sponsored by Bio-Rad, which pairs local scientists with teachers to bring science into the classroom.  Bio-Rad provides all necessary supplies for a DNA extraction activity.
