Molecular Biology for Secondary Classrooms

Advanced concepts in molecular biology become more than just words and pictures for the Nebraska high school students who participate in Nebraska EPSCoR's Molecular Biology for Secondary Classrooms (MBSC) program. The MBSC program demonstrates basic principles of genetics and genetic engineering through three portable laboratory experiments for use by 9th grade biology, 10th grade differentiated or honors biology, and advanced biology classrooms across the state. The program is in its 5th year and has reached over one-thousand students annually in the last four years.

New participants are chosen on a first-come, first-serve basis and are incorporated based on availability of funds and equipment. Nebraska EPSCoR particularly encourages the participation of teachers or schools that serve traditionally underrepresented populations, including rural students.

For more information, go to the MBSC website.
